What Is Nunavik Parks Beneficiary Access Initiative ?

Since 2017, in order to promote greater access to the Parks, Nunavik Parks is offering financial support to James-Bay Northern Quebec Agreement (JBNQA) beneficiaries. Regardless of their home community in Nunavik, the Nunavik Parks Beneficiary Access Initiative (NPBAI) aims to reduce the barriers to go to the Parks. The NPBAI is built upon two main components: reducing fees and transportation costs.

How Does Nunavik Parks Beneficiary Access Initiative Work?

Under its first component, JBNQA beneficiaries receive a 50% reduction on the cost of activities and services delivered by Nunavik Parks. This component is on top of the free park access enjoyed by JBNQA beneficiaries in accordance with the Quebec Parks Act.

The second component of the NPBAI facilitates travel to the parks. If you are eligible and the funds available, the NPBAI will provide reimbursement for a portion of related air travel costs.

If you are a single visitor or coming with a group : friends, family, students, elders or any JBNQA beneficiary interested in travelling to a national park in Nunavik, you may apply to the program.
