From last March 2nd to 8th, 4 post-secondary students who receive financial support from Kativik Illisarniliriniq together with 12 students from Collège Montmorency had the privilege of experiencing life north of the 55th parallel in the village of Umiujaq. Realized with the precious collaboration of Kativik Illisarniliriniq education consultant Marie-Hélène Morin, Project Sivuniq 2018 enabled six film students, six Momo-Écoute students and four Inuit students to experience a unique cultural exchange. The group was accompanied by David Lamontagne, film teacher, and Frédérick Lapointe, social service officer. Marie-Hélène Morin and Amélie Beaulieu were also on the trip. Social worker Amélie Beaulieu is employed by Kativik Illisarniliriniq. She works with students who receive financial support from the school board to pursue their post-secondary studies.

The trip had various objectives, including shooting short documentaries (film students), hosting classes and the Breakfast Club (Momo Écoute) and presenting the pathway to post-secondary education (Inuit students). The ambition of the organizers and participants was to create links between the communities and to promote the positive initiatives, meaningful rituals and way of life of this people in the Far North.
