Baffinland helps Arctic Bay kickstart daycare

Arctic Bay daycare advocates stand next to a huge image representing the $50,000 that Baffinland Iron Mines Corp. gave to the community on Aug. 17 to help realize its plan to re-open the Tununirusiq daycare centre. “This donation … will give us the opportunity to reopen our doors and make plans for the daycare,” said Arctic Bay’s mayor Frank May. The donation will also help Arctic Bay start an early childhood resource centre to house the daycare and the Aboriginal Head Start Program.
