As Inuvik prepares for the extension on class A liquor licenses to come in to affect, the community is supporting the need for a detox centre.
The amendment to the liquor act will allow establishments to be open a total of 26 Sundays of the year.
The NWT does not have a detox centre, an issue that has been the centre of debate for some time.
Joey Amos, the manager of John Wayne Kiktorak Centre – Inuvik’s emergency warming shelter, has filed the paperwork to establish a non-profit treatment centre in the Beaufort Delta.
Amos is working on establishing a board of directors and raising the funds to get the centre off the ground.
