Nunavik curfew no longer applies to harvesters
Residents now allowed to hunt and fish during curfew hours
Nunavik residents wanting to hunt and fish may now do so without worrying about breaking a region-wide curfew.
The Nunavik Regional Emergency Preparedness Advisory Committee announced the amendment to the curfew on May 1 to exempt residents travelling outside their communities to hunt or fish during curfew hours.
A curfew has been in place across Nunavik since late March, with its hours set at 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. as of April 15, to help contain the spread of the novel coronavirus.
