On March 24, 2010, the governments of Quebec and Canada and the Inuit renewed a tripartite housing agreement in Nunavik. This new 5-year agreement will allow the construction of some 340 social housing units in Nunavik. As outlined in this agreement, the Government of Canada will finance the construction of housing units, while the Quebec government will assume the operating deficit over a 15-year period. Makivik Corporation will be the main contractor for building construction and the Kativik Municipal Housing Bureau will be owner and manager. In 2008-09, INAC contributed a total of $13,802,900 to Makivik Corporation and $14,221,000 in 2009-10. Canada`s Aboriginal Human Resources and Skills Development Strategy (HRSDC) enables Aboriginal organizations in Quebec that have signed human resource development agreements to implement their own employment programs that help integrate their clients into employment. In 2008-2010, HRSDC provided a total of $39,560,500 to Cree, Inuit and Naskapi to implement this strategy. The resources allocated to Cree, Inuit and Naskapi have made available to their respective clients various employment measures, including encouraging return to work or school for more than 4,603 Inuit and more than 4,449 Cree.

Here we have lived and survived for thousands of years. This is where our ancestors taught their children how to pick berries, look for food and make tools out of the country. The land, wildlife and sea have been and still are an excellent supplier to us Inuit, Cree and Naskapi.
It is important that the country is respected and treated with good intentions for future generations and future developments. These mandates were created to ensure that our ecosystem and way of life prosper with growing populations and development needs. The James Bay Agreement addresses a number of issues and is the first Canadian-indigenous treaty since the 1920s to have few similarities to previous treaties, but it has become the prototype of the many agreements reached since then. It defined a number of provisions, mainly in the following areas: a new five-year funding contract for the eeyou-Eenou police was concluded on 18 June 2009. This agreement is the result of the negotiation and revision of Complementary Agreement 19, which amended Section 19 JBNQA. The new agreement will allow at least 70 police officers to patrol cree communities. The James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement is an Aboriginal settlement that was approved in 1975 by the Cree and Inuit in northern Quebec and slightly amended in 1978 by the agreement in northeastern Quében. The agreement covers economic development and property issues in northern Quebec, as well as the establishment of a series of cultural, social and governmental institutions for Aboriginal peoples who are members of treaty communities. Dispute resolution mechanisms are included in the two implementation agreements with Naskapi and the Inuit (NEQA and JBNQA) and in the New Relationship Agreement with cree.
