The community of Hopedale has been approved to undertake a make-work project.
Kitu Abel is the Town Manager for the Hopedale Inuit Community Government (HICG).
She says they received $15,000 from the Provincial Government through its Community Enhancement Program.
Three people will be hired through the project.
They will be repairing the community’s graveyards.
Abel says once those three people receive enough hours to qualify for Employment Insurance, the HICG will hire others who have applied for the program.
