Halifax-based agency that runs Cambridge Bay home chosen as service provider
Iqaluit’s Illagiitugut group home for youth will re-open its doors as a residence for female adolescents this June, under a new service provider.
Nunavut’s Department of Family Services signed a service contract last month with Atlantic Youth, a Halifax-based agency that also runs a group home in Cambridge Bay called 4D North.
The youth care service agency’s chief executive officer, Andrew Middleton, visited the Illagiitugut facility on Feb. 14 and met with family services personnel, “to discuss next steps and the programming that will be offered,” the department told Nunatsiaq News.
