Kativik Regional Government has received $1.1 million to help Nunavik’s 14 communities combat the effects of climate change.

The money comes from a $2.1-million funding package from the Government of Quebec, Labour Minister Jean Boulet announced March 19 in a news release.

Boulet said the money makes up part of a $500-million provincial fund to support municipalities as they adapt to a changing climate.

The money announced March 19 will help KRG develop an action plan on how to best maintain and protect community infrastructure and essential services, said Denis Abbott, communications director for the regional government.

The Kativik government has been working alongside Makivvik Corp. since 2020 on a climate change adaptation strategy. A draft created in April 2023 compiles the knowledge of more than 90 people from every corner of Nunavik.

The strategy is intended to be a “road map” for climate change adaptation across the region, said Abbott, who added the strategy is scheduled to launch this spring.

    1.1 million dollars for climate change. Where will the largest proportion of this 1.1 million go to? Make work projects or to line someones bank account who works for the organization that is receiving the 1.1 million dollars. Climate Change? A made up term from those living inn the south to place fear and panic in peoples lives on a day to day basis.

      Thanks Flabbergasted. Just think, no one, as in no one, within Nunavik, the Quebec government, Canadian government, scientific community, at NN, or among commenters here has even a tiny shred of evidence that human-made climate exists, yet each member of those communities acts as if it’s abundantly clear. Curious.

        Nobody has a shred of evidence that human-made climate change exists? So… “More than 99.9% of peer-reviewed scientific papers agree that climate change is mainly caused by humans, according to a new survey of 88,125 climate-related studies”, is just nothing? Over 88,000 peer-reviewed scientific papers are baseless and don’t even contain a single shred of evidence?

          Thanks Wayq; could ye provide a link to one of those 88,000+ collections of data even a singular sample of data to show clear evidence of human-made climate.

          Even just ONE piece of evidence. Please

    Of course, when big bucks attached to climate change, it mutes critical thinking and rushes out the hands in belief.

    When it’s funny how climate change two-word phrase back in 2001 emerged when global warming wouldn’t play along. Started cooling instead.

    So the ole hook line.. “… if you actually say it louder, we’ve learned in the House of Commons. If you repeat it, if you say it louder, if that is your talking point, people will totally believe it.”

    It keeps eyes off of decades of weather modification techniques and don’t notice what’s dropping to land and water from increasing straight line fake cloud.

    Instead, all we hear from politicians is climate change fear-fear. Because climate change is locked into the agenda of no roads, no eating meat, eat bugs and gas cars/trucks banned.

    So no surprise at seeing Nunavut politician voting No halt to carbon tax in February and again in March 2024.

    No concern or urgency questioning. How will hunt, berry pick, fish, travel in town and out on the land when gas cars, trucks, snow-machines, boats, ATV banned in Nunavut within the next 6 years?

    As if climate change money agenda is to make people just controlled nothings.
