Hundreds of housing units likely for Nunavik
Money would come from Quebec and Ottawa to Makivik Corp.
KUUJJUAQ - A whack of new social housing units likely lie in store for Nunavik.
A meeting of Nunavik's regional organizations on Feb. 27 in Kuujjuaq is expected to pave the way for the announcement of a multi-million-dollar package of deals at a news conference March 6 in Montreal, according to information from the Kativik Regional Government in Kuujjuaq.
A social housing deal, which will involve the federal and provincial governments as well as Makivik Corp., could be worth as much as $230 million over five to 10 years.
