If you live in Iqaluit, you should be aware of how the holidays will affect municipal services.
The City of Iqaluit offices will be closed for half a day on each of Dec. 24 and Dec. 31, and for a full day on Dec. 25 and Dec. 26, as well as on Jan. 1, 2019.
In addition, trucked services may also be limited for some holiday hours, the city said in a news release.
Here’s the schedule for trucked services for waste disposal and water delivery during the holiday period:

Emergency trucked-service for water will be available, for a fee of $250, by contacting the non-emergency dispatch number at 979-5650.
“While the majority of people on trucked water service will not be affected, households containing five or more people may wish to consider conserving water by reducing and/or deferring laundry and the use of dishwashers,” the city release said.
