Igloolik is often considered the cultural capital of the Baffin, and Nunavut, because of the cultural continuity that has been preserved in traditions and language. Igloolik is also home to two video production companies, Isuma Productions Inc., which specializes in cultural programming, and a local office of the Nunavut wide Inuit Broadcasting Corporation. more

Igloolik - 725 April 2001
PowerHouse
Original metal clad building was constructed in 1974 on a concrete foundation which
has suffered considerable subsidence. Floor was mud-jacked in 1976 and is presently stable. Office and storage are in separate buildings. Storage is adequate in a combination of small warehouses, garage, and sea can. Small residual heat system supplies heat to the community centre and corporation buildings.

Fuel Tanks
One 90K horizontal tank is installed in a metal berm on the plant site. Two 600K tanks
are installed in a substandard berm approximately 300 yards from the plant site.
Environmental liability is high. Planned upgrade has been stalled due to community
opposition to the present tank location and also contamination of the existing site. The
pipeline between the bulk tanks and the plant is vulnerable to mechanical damage.
Capital Work
Considerable upgrading was completed in 1995/96. One new unit was installed,
plant automation completed, residual heat recovery installed for corporation buildings,
and the transient trailer upgraded.
Plant Forecast
Capacity of the plant is adequate for the foreseeable future. Plant is located centrally
within the community and residual heat recovery is easily accomplished as there are
several large buildings in the immediate area.
Future Work
The building is adequate for the foreseeable future. The existing tank farm is in serious
need of upgrading.
