July 2012 - Kangiqsualujjuaq, Qc, Canada. Eight new houses that will lodge 16 families, are being built during the summer. While none have been built since 2009, there was renovation of houses last year and the opening of 19 elders appartments. This won't be sufficient as the Nunavik communities have seen a demographic rate increase of 26% between 1996 and 2006. In 2006, the average age was 20 years old, and 13% of the Inuit population have less than 4 years old. It is not rare to see 10 to 18 persons living in a single house of 800 square foot and only two bedrooms.
