For over 15 years Kuujjuamiut Inc. has provided trailering services for boaters who are headed out camping or returning home from a trip. We also operate the Kuujjuaq Marina service building which provides a shelter for campers as well as a communication base for HF & VHF radios for campers to keep in touch with those out on the land and more importantly for emergencies.
Kuujjuamiut also maintains various maritime equipment which assists boaters such as the steel launching plates at the Marina, Beach & Dock, the floating dock system at the Marina which is installed every season. We also operate navigational improvement equipment such as the nav-lights on the river.
Kuujjuamiut also owns and operates a landing craft barge which has provided assistance to community projects such as the Kuujjuaq Youth camp among others.
The personal loans program is funded under the Kuujjuaq Economic Assistance Fund and was established in 2008 to respond to the needs for personal financing assistance for our beneficiaries. The program was initially created for the purpose of financing the acquisition of essential harvesting equipment such as snowmobiles, atv’s, canoes & outboard motors. Today, a wide range of personal financing needs are eligible such as helping homeowners getting started.
Credit screening services are handled by the Equifax credit bureau. Kuujjuamiut has also developed it’s own internal credit score system which is also an integral part of the screening process.
The program is very successful in providing financial assistance to it’s members while generating a substantial return to the Corporation which will ensure the availability of capital for future generations.

Claims for Damages to Property
Claims for damage to property are covered under section 6 of the Kuujjuamiut (1988) Agreement. Eligible claimants may submit a claim form for damages to property such as outboard motors, and prop-ellers. Damages must be able to be attributed to lower waters caused by the diversion of the Caniapiscau river which took place in 1981.
A claim form must be submitted for each incident which will then be validated by Kuujjuamiut within 30 days of reception. Only damages which occur up-stream from Big Elbow Island will be considered for validation.
Community FM Radio Station
Owned by Société Kuujjuamiut, it is unknown when the station was originally licensed, however, the CKUJ began broadcasting at 90.1 FM, until it moved to its current frequency approved in 1991.
