Civil Security Section
The role of the Civil Security Section is to increase awareness of the importance of emergency preparedness in the communities and support related activities. In particular, the Section works closely with the 14 northern villages to strengthen planning, human and physical resources for fire safety and search and rescue operations.
Funding for the Section is drawn from the Agreement concerning Block Funding for the Kativik Regional Government (Sivunirmut Agreement) and agreements signed in 2010 and 2011 regarding the Nunavik Fire Safety Cover Plan. Additional funding for a few projects may also be drawn every year from the Partnership Agreement on Economic and Community Development in Nunavik (Sanarrutik Agreement).
