The Inuvialuit Regional Corporation (IRC)  is now offering additional funding to individuals and families in the settlement region for a one-time continuation of the On the Land (OTL) program.

Residents living on the land during the summer months, needing help with essential living costs such as food, cleaning supplies, and gas can apply here.

Applicants will be eligible for an $800 flat rate, to go towards essentials.

Residents interested in the On the Land (OTL) program, will need to re-apply even if you have previously received OTL funding from IRC before.

Due to limited funds and a high volume of applications, late applications will not be accepted and the funding may take a couple of weeks.

Applications are due August 14 at 5:00 p.m.
