Reduced rates for Inuit beneficiaries of Nunavik

The Ilaujuq program is a joint Makivik Corporation and Air Inuit initiative created to make air travel more accessible for the Inuit of Nunavik. It offers reduced rates for beneficiaries of the James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement whose work or lifestyle requires them to frequently travel between communities.

Under the Ilaujuq program, Inuit beneficiaries of Nunavik are granted 4 certificates per year, valid for a 75% rebate on either round-trip airline tickets or the shipment of certain types of commodities.

This program aims not only to provide financial assistance, but also to preserve the integrity of the culture and lifestyle by connecting the Inuit community and increasing their future prospects through travel.
