2021

On May 4, 2021, Qarjuit Youth Council held a Grand Opening Ceremony in Kuujjuaq for its brand new office, which will serve as our main head office across the region for the next few years. It was a memorable ceremony where funders, partners, building owners and the QYC team, along with youth from the community gathered and celebrated the success of the youth organization.

There were a few speakers who participated, including Vice-President Sevim Ilgun, who welcomed the people who came, and President Aleashia Echalook who spoke about the history of Qarjuit. There was a presentation on the funders and partners from General Manager Caroline Martel, as well as a lovely presentation by Project Manager Daniel Gadbois. We were also honoured to have Martha Greg, a respected elder, who did the lighting of the Qulliq. Snacks and drinks were provided at the event. This grand opening ceremony happened respecting the guidelines and measures that were given by public health and the Nunavik Regional Board of Health and Social Services to prevent COVID-19 from spreading across our region. It is such a milestone in our young history to have a safe place for a long term where we can advocate and give a voice to the youth of Nunavik and Chisasibi.
Many thanks for all the support QYC receives from Nunavik and beyond on behalf of all the youth of the region.
