Usijiit Para- and Public- Transit Services

Para-transit services for elders and people with disabilities were launched across Nunavik in 2005. Day-to-day operations and vehicle maintenance are managed locally by the northern villages with technical assistance provided by the KRG as required. The Québec government integrated KRG responsibility for the delivery of para-transit services in the 14 northern villages into mandate B.20 of the Sivunirmut Agreement on April 1, 2006, along with responsibility for introducing public-transit services. At that time, no northern villages offered public transit. Today, combined para- and public-transit services are available in nine northern villages. Separate para- and public-transit services are delivered in Inukjuak, Puvirnituq, Kangirsuk and Kuujjuaq, and para-transit services are delivered in Akulivik.
