Stations across Nunavik will be getting $10K each
Five Nunavik radio stations are receiving grants from the Quebec government as part of a provincial financial assistance program for Indigenous-run radio stations.
Seventeen stations will be receiving $10,000 each, as part of a broad $170,000 investment, Quebec’s minister of culture and communications announced Monday.
“These radios are a very important communication vehicle in Indigenous communities, and that is why our government is keen to support them,” said Nathalie Roy.
“Our investments contribute to the vitality of communities and contribute to the influence of these rich cultures, while allowing the promotion of Indigenous languages.”
The following five stations in Nunavik will be receiving the grants:
- CKUJ FM Radio in Kuujjuaq
- Kangiqsualujjuaq Community Radio
- Puvirnituup Tusautinga CKPV FM
- Qarqalik Radio Station in Kangiqsujuaq
