Founded in 1960, the Puvirnituq Cooperative was involved in the creation of the Federation of Cooperatives of New Quebec. Strengthened by the success brought to them by working together, the Puvirniturmiut quickly came to the conclusion that if the idea of cooperation was pushed a little further and extended to other communities, this would give the Nunavimmiut such a strong tool for economic and social development that government bodies and economic interests would not be able to ignore them.
That is how it was decided to invite the other already-existing cooperatives to unite as a federation. Thus, strengthened in number, they could all henceforth count on each other in more difficult times in addition to benefiting from greater purchasing power.
FCNQ Construction proudly supports its 14 member co-operatives with their construction and maintenance needs.
Our work is deeply rooted in our commitment to the sustainable growth of Nunavik and its vibrant communities.
This is where FCNQ Construction operates and that is how we have became Nunavik's trusted builder for over 40 years.
