Ongoing Survey in Kangiqsualujjuaq



This consultation aims to craft a tool to change the way houses and villages could be built in Nunavik. We invite Kangiqsualujjuammiut to share their thoughts on Inuit ways of life. Open to all adult residents, 360 illustrated booklets in English and Inuktitut to be filled-in (with return envelopes) have been delivered to every PO box in Kangiqsualujjuaq.

Please send back your filled-in booklet !

The survey address nine key topics regarding Inuit living environments, at three scales: HOUSE (pulaarvik and other rooms, porches and windows), RESIDENTIAL AREAS (space near my house, neighbourhood, community space), VILLAGE (housing choices, dwelling control, living outside the village).
