The Auberge Kuujjuaq Inn and Ikkarivvik bar are owned by the Nayumivik Landholding Corporation in Kuujjuaq.


Kuujjuaq meaning "Great River" in Inuktitut, is an Inuit community in the territory of Northern Quebec.  The community is located on the shores of the Koksoak River 50 km from Ungava Bay at approximately 58°6'24" N, 68°23'55" W.  As of 2006, the population of Kuujjuaq was 2,180 and is currently the largest Inuit village in Nunavik.

Daily life in this community is closely tied to the mighty river. The ebb and flow of its tides are continually altering the landscape and they impose their rhythm on the practice of traditional summer activities.

The boreal forest is present around Kuujjuaq. Patches of black spruce and larch stand in marshy valleys. Kuujjuaq also witnesses annual migrations of the George River caribou herd. These animals pass through the region throughout September to November.

With its two airstrips, Kuujjuaq is the transportation hub of the entire region.


The Nayumivik Landholding Corporation of Kuujjuaq is the owner of 546.1 km2 of Category I lands, 83.7 km2 of Category I Special lands, and has specific rights, responsibilities and controls over 8,880.4 km2 of Category II lands.
