Kativik Regional Government

The Kativik Regional Government (KRG) is a public organization created in 1978 pursuant to the Act respecting Northern Villages and the Kativik Regional Government (Kativik Act) and the James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement. The KRG delivers services in Quebec, above the 55th parallel, excluding category 1A and 1B lands belonging to the Cree community of Whapmagoostui. A Council of 16 members elected for two years administers the affairs of the KRG.

The principle offices of the KRG are located in Kuujjuaq and there is a local office in each of the 13 other northern villages. KRG is a non-ethnic organization governed by the Kativik Act which employs over 300 individuals in 11 departments. Under agreement with Emploi-Québec, the KRG offers, since June 2008, employment and training program services to the Inuit at the CLE site in Verdun, Quebec.

Employment, training, income support and childcare services

The mission of the employment, training, income support and childcare services is inextricably woven into the spirit of Section 29 of the James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement concerning the economic and social development of the Inuit. Since 1992, this department manages an ever increasing number of federal and provincial programs in these four areas.
