Department of Community and Government Services - May 28, 2020

Minister of Community and Government Services update

Ullaakkut,

With the construction season upon us the Government of Nunavut (GN) has undertaken necessary preparations for construction projects to proceed during the summer and fall of 2020 in 19 Nunavut communities.

This includes over 50 capital projects valued at approximately $600 million. Given the significant size of our construction program, we rely on a certain level of skilled workers from southern Canada to work on these projects alongside our Inuit and Northern labour.

In consultation with Dr. Patterson, arrangements have been made to ensure that all southern workers comply with the strict requirement of the 14-day isolation period before travelling to Nunavut. The GN will control and monitor these measures at the isolation facilities in the south during the 14 days including up until workers board their flights.

This follows the procedures for residents and medical travellers already in place.

We need to balance the long-term infrastructure needs of communities with the current COVID-19 restrictions and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the municipalities, especially our mayors and councillors, for taking an active role in the decision to proceed with these projects during the 2020 construction season.

I also would like to acknowledge the construction companies for their understanding of, and the need to respect, the directives set by Dr. Patterson to ensure that the construction projects move ahead with an understanding of maintaining the health and well-being of the workers and all Nunavummiut.

Despite the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are looking forward to a safe and productive construction season this summer.

Thank you.

 


Department of Community and Government services - April 30, 2020

Critical services will be maintained in Pond Inlet, and plans are in place to ensure that access to services such as heat, power, water, sewer, and communications will not be interrupted.

Community and Government Services (CGS), along with the municipality, has a plan in place for a water intake/pumping solution to ensure the community has ongoing access to water

The temporary pumping system will include:

  • A pump set up on the shore of the reservoir,
  • Suction hose put through a drilled hole in the ice,
  • A discharge hose to supply water into the back of the water truck,
  • Manual chlorination into the back of the truck, and,
  • The pump will be set up in a temporary porta-tank to provide containment for fuel refilling.
     

This solution can be managed by municipality staff. CGS is actively working on a permanent solution to be implemented later this summer.


Department of Community and Government services - April 20, 2020

The Department of Community and Government services is providing an additional $2 million to municipalities to cover expenses related to COVID-19. This additional funding will ensure that hamlets are able to provide unforeseen services in response to the pandemic.

Eligible expenses include but are not limited to the purchase of cleaning materials, hiring additional staff, expenses for additional road clearing, by-law and enforcement patrols, and to cover lost revenues resulting from facility closures.

Municipalities can contact their CGS regional community development office for more information.
