IRC provides funds to each beneficiary in a COVID response effort

September 15, 2021

Sheree McLeod, IRC Communications Intern, started work on some additional gryfalcon images for IRC over the summer; look for more to come!

The Inuvialuit Regional Corporation will be providing each beneficiary with a $200 COVID support payment.  This payment is being issued September 15, 2021.  Another payment of $200 will be issued to each beneficiary the week of November 15, 2021. 

“IRC is happy to assist beneficiaries with funds to purchase more in terms of groceries or cleaning supplies as COVID cases rise throughout Canada, the extra funds could help this month especially with children back to school,” said Duane Ningaqsiq Smith, IRC Chair and CEO.

  • Inuvialuit Regional Corporation will be issuing payments by the direct deposit method (Electronic Fund Transfers) to those enrolled beneficiaries who have registered their direct deposit information with IRC.  
  • For those not yet using or able to use direct deposit/(EFT), Inuvialuit Regional Corporation will be mailing out cheques to addresses already on file with the Deputy Registrar of Enrolment on September 13, 2021.
