Rankin Inlet, Nunavut – The design phase for two new water treatment plants in Rankin Inlet and Grise Fiord will receive $1.9 million in funding from the federal and territorial governments.

With this funding, detailed designs will be developed. This work builds upon the planning studies that previously received joint funding in July 2022 and will ensure that these growing communities have the water treatment capacity they need for years to come.

Water treatment facilities perform vital functions that help make communities healthier and more sustainable. Through projects like these, Arctic and northern communities are getting the resources they need to improve their essential services.


“Safe and clean drinking water in all communities across the North is a top priority for the Government of Nunavut,” David Joanasie, minister for government and community services for Nunavut, said.
