Nukik and its Inuit leadership are very pleased that, today, the Honourable Dan Vandal, Minister of Northern Affairs, CanNor and PrairiesCan, announced in a keynote address that Nukik Corporation is receiving an additional $2.8 million in funding from Canada’s Northern REACHE Program to advance the Kivalliq Hydro-Fibre Link project to the next phase of development.

This builds on previous federal funding for the earlier planning and feasibility phase of the project. Construction is expected to begin by 2028.

In addition, Nukik Corporation announced today the formation of a first-of-its-kind partnership with Arctic Gateway Group and the Town of Churchill to advance shared priorities on the establishment of a strategic northern infrastructure and energy corridor.
