supervised housing for at-risk people

Housing aimed at helping low-income Inuit who live with mental health problems.

A group of Nunavik organizations have opened the region’s first supervised housing aimed at lower income tenants living with mental health issues.

The Uvattinut Supervised Apartments, a project of Nunavik’s Regional Board of Health and Social Services, the Kativik Municipal Housing Bureau and Kativik Regional Government, officially opened in Puvirnituq .

Uvattinut offers eight fully-equipped apartments, open primarily to

residents of Puvirnituq, although it welcomes 

applicants from other Nunavik communities.

The apartments are designed for low-income

inuit who struggle with mental health problems

and are considered at risk for homelessness.

Staff from both Uvattinut and Aaniavituqarq,

along with local social workers, are expected

to help residents with medication, money

management and personal issues, maintenance

of each apartment, and provide clients with

social and recreational activities.
