If you find yourself, or know of someone who is in an emergency situation, and live in Nunavut, please use this form to apply for an Emergency Voucher.
This community voucher program provides access to emergency and immediate assistance for those identified to be in high-need situations. Emergency vouchers are issued on a one-time relief basis only.
Approved voucher applications are serviced based on available resources in each community. This means, we may deliver groceries/supplies to your house, provide groceries/supplies for pick up at your local Northern store or issue a gift grocery certificate.
Voucher applications are accepted from the local RCMP, Family Services, other essential service staff, individuals and families. All recipients are qualified and approved prior to voucher disbursement. While each voucher need is different, we typically provide items such as food, diapers, baby formula or iron rich foods for children diagnosed with Tuberculosis.
These emergency vouchers are in high demand. Unfortunately we do not have the funding to meet all requests. Priority is given to children with Tuberculosis, babies, households with children and no food, and elders.
We do our best to turn around voucher applications same day. Some cases may take longer depending on information provided, verification process and store hours.
