Inuulitsivik health centre reveals its new logo
“A healthy family living on the Hudson coast of Nunavik"
Nunavik’s Inuulitsivik health centre, which also looks after the hospital in Puvirnituq, health and social services in seven Hudson Bay communities and patient services in Montreal, has a new logo, unveiled June 12 in Puvirnituq.
The new logo, which replaces a design featuring an ulu and other traditional tools, shows a man and a woman in traditional clothing against a map of Nunavik, with dots marking the communities served by Inuulitsivik.
Inuulitsivik launched a logo contest last year, inviting people served by Inuulitsivik to design a new logo.
The logo, designed by Hélène Girard, “met all of our requirements,” said Aliva Tulugak, the president of Inuulitsivik’s board of directors.
Girard, who lives in Puvirnituq, says the logo shows “a healthy family living on the Hudson coast of Nunavik, looking to the future (the sun), which represents happiness and health.”
Everyone who works for Inuulitsivik will receive a mug with new logo.
Along with the new logo, Inuulitsivik can also look to a brighter financial future. It’s recovered from years of financial bleeding, thanks to a write-off by Quebec of its $100-million accumulated deficit.
