The Kivalliq Hydro-Fibre Link unlocks the economic potential of the Kivalliq region and promotes reconciliation with the Inuit, ensuring the future prosperity of Nunavut and Canada.

  • The Inuit of the seven Kivalliq communities will own 51% of this joint venture.

  • Over 10,000 residents will have access to affordable fibreoptic broadband service for the first time, modernizing the region’s telecommunications systems and enabling future economic development.

  • A modern fibreoptic network will facilitate the delivery of government services and improve every day life for Nunavummiut, allowing tele-healthcare visits, expanded e-business and greater educational opportunities.

  • The project will create 300 jobs during construction and 30 permanent jobs during operations.

 
“This Inuit-led project will provide lasting benefits to the entire Territory and Canada. It will unlock significant economic development opportunities and investment in Canada’s North and train a new Inuit workforce. This project is what true reconciliation looks like.” 
— David Ningeongan, President, Kivalliq Inuit Association
