The Nunavut Government won't be importing homes from outside of the country any time soon, Minister of Community and Government Services Lorne Kusugak said in the Legislative Assembly Thursday.

That's after Iqaluit-Manirajaq MLA Adam Arreak Lightstone asked if the department could construct homes and buildings the way the Qikiqtaaluk Corporation is building a new hotel in Iqaluit.

The Inuit corporation and business arm of the Qikiqtani Inuit Association is building a 94-room hotel using ready-made hotel rooms imported from China. The block-style rooms for the Aqsarniit Hotel and Conference Centre on Federal Road arrived by sealift from Shanghai and were installed in around two weeks.

As an NJ modular home provider, Supreme Modular has employed these design options within our homes . Modular homes are easily financed through conventional mortgage financing because lenders are assured of a completed project with a higher degree of both quality and cost control.

"I myself and my colleagues were surprised by the speed at which this large construction project was put up," Arreak Lightstone said.

"I understand the important role that our capital projects have in maintaining our economy ... it's unfortunate many of the modular units were constructed in China," he said. "That being said, is the minister willing to consider undertaking a pilot project using that type of technology?"

'Something this house would not entertain'

Kusugak said the only thing he learned from the Aqsarniit hotel project was that it was built outside of the country.

There would be an "uproar" in the house, and within the territory's private sector, if the government started buying homes from overseas and having local labour add on the "siding and window trim," he said.

Federal Court sides with Ottawa in decision to reduce Nunavik polar bear hunt

  Federal Court sides with Ottawa in decision to reduce Nunavik polar bear hunt OTTAWA — A Federal Court judge has sided with Environment Minister Catherine McKenna in a decision she made to reduce the number of polar bears that Nunavik Inuit can hunt, despite claims that she failed to consider traditional knowledge about the health of the bear population. The decision was the culmination of a years-long process, the first of its kind under a modern treaty signed by the Nunavik Inuit and the federal government in 2006, meant to balance Inuit knowledge with scientific evidence. The case highlights an ongoing source of tension between Inuit hunters and researchers when it comes to   polar bear populations.

Kusugak said the private sector is not beholden to article 23 of the Nunavut Agreement. That article calls for Inuit employment levels that represent the population.

"I have to answer to this house … it would not be something this house would entertain," he said.

While it is owned by a regional Inuit association, the Qikiqtaaluk Corporation is a private company.

"We need to have Inuit employment in our contracts to build any government facilities," he said. "I assure you, if this government built homes in China to bring to all the homeless people in Nunavut everybody would be opposed because there are no Inuit building those houses."

Right now in Nunavut around 5,000 people are on a wait list for public housing. Around half of the population live in overcrowded homes. The Nunavut Housing Corporation estimates that the territory needs to see at least 3,000 housing units built to meet current need.
