Kativik Regional Government

Search and Rescue

The Kativik Regional Police Force (KRPF) is the agency responsible for the coordination of inland search and rescue operations in Nunavik in close collaboration with community, regional and provincial authorities. Since 2012, the KRPF is a formal partner of the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre (operated by the Canadian Forces in cooperation with the Canadian Coast Guard) for responses relating to marine or aeronautical incidents in and around the region. Travellers on the land and along the coasts of Nunavik are responsible for ensuring they possess basic survival skills and safety knowledge, and that they always carry with them the proper equipment.
