Qajuqturvik Community Food Centre executive director admits ‘oversight’ in not filing for reduction
Qajuqturvik Community Food Centre is asking for a retroactive property tax rebate from the City of Iqaluit.
In 2022, the city revised a bylaw so selected non-profit organizations could pay reduced property taxes.
However, Qajuqturvik mistakenly failed to apply for a property tax rebate this year, executive director Rachel Blais told city council at its Nov. 28 meeting.
Qajuqturvik is an Iqaluit non-profit organization that aims to improve access to food. It offers free daily meals, country food boxes, classes in cooking and financial literacy as well as on-the-land youth programs.
