Cambridge Bay’s Kuugaq Café closes its regular food service

Cambridge Bay’s Kuugaq Café has stopped serving meals and brunches, two weeks after the start of its contract to supply food to Canadian North. “The staffing was what made the final decision for us,” said co-owner Stuart Rostant about the problems of finding workers in the western Nunavut hub of about 1,800. Rostant said they are hoping to “simplify things a bit in the coming weeks” by focusing more on the catering side of the business. “We have such a loyal following.… Our plan is to still have the community enjoy the space but in a different capacity. You can expect more of a cafe vs restaurant feel in the future.” (Photo by Jane George)

    Sad and strange that you can’t get reliable labour in a community that almost certainly has an unemployment rate many times higher than the national average
