A new living environment located in Pointe-Claire welcomes Nunavik residents living with an intellectual disability (ID) or an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This resource allows users to obtain several services that ensure a better future while preparing them for an active life when they return to their communities.
Thanks to the collaboration between the Nunavik Regional Board of Health and Social Services (NRBHSS) and the Ungava Tulattavik Health Centre (UTHC), Isurrivik becomes the first family-type residential resource for adults to be created in Nunavik.
Located at 1450 in Kuujjuuaq, Isurrivik offers a structured living environment for Inuit users, respecting their degree of autonomy. Annie Castonguay and Barbara Helen Wellman will assist the residents in their daily and domestic activities. The official inauguration of the Isurrivik House took place on June 16th, 2022, with the responsible in charge of this new resource Jeannie May, several guests, and partners.
