Quebec, Ottawa promise flood of funds

KUUJJUAQ - Cabinet ministers from Quebec City and Ottawa say they are ready to spend at least $200 million to improve social and economic conditions in Nunavik.

The largest amounts will go towards building and maintaining social housing and community infrastructure, lowering the region's high cost of living and improving access to high-speed internet.

The handouts were announced at the Katimajiit meeting on Nunavik's social and economic development, which took place Aug. 23 and 24 at the Katittavik cultural centre in Kuujjuaq.
