A place to know oneself.

Ilisaqsivik is Inuit community-building, starting with each person. In helping each other, we are finding ourselves. In reconciling the past, present and what’s ahead, our communities will be places where Inuit can decide their path and travel it.

Kangiqtugaapingmiut saw deep and unanswered needs in our community.

Needs for better health, cultural connection, skills development—all of the things that allow a person to live a full life. Ilisaqsivik was created because we decided to start helping each other instead of waiting for help.

Ilisaqsivik grew from the ground up.

Whatever our community’s need, we would work to fulfil it, building each program in a way that works for Kangiqtugaapingmiut.
This has led us to create everything from a library to a school breakfast program, from Inuktitut-language counselling to a Heritage and Research Centre.

Today, Ilisaqsivik’s wide-ranging services defy convention and reach beyond Clyde River.

Because, of course, our community’s needs are shared by many other Inuit communities. We build partnerships and programs that will enhance the wellbeing and personal potential of Nunavummiut.
