Iqaluit and Kinngait Family Wellness offering restricted services only

The Department of Family Services is advising Iqaluit and Kinngait residents of a temporary closure of the Family Wellness Offices from August 29 to September 15, 2022 due to staff shortages.

During the temporary closure, limited staffing resources will be available to provide emergent and some restricted services such as family visits and assisting clients to and from appointments.

Calls will continue to go to the Family Wellness offices in each community but there may be delays during this time. 

Service reductions or closures are subject to change based on staff availability.

The Department of Family Services is working with government and territorial partners to ensure Nunavummiut have access to necessary Family Wellness services while addressing staff shortages.
