Carrefour Nunavut is committed to creating a healthy and safe living environment for children. The camp has adopted a series of preventive measures to create and maintain a safe environment.

The children, as well as the camp staff, will be invited to respect it. Children will also be informed of the importance of talking to someone they trust, if unpleasant situations occur.
The camp provides a safe environment. We therefore need your cooperation to ensure a healthy living environment and a safe environment for children. That's why the camp asks you to read the code of life, talk to your child, and encourage them to talk about a problem or an uncomfortable situation to an adult with whom they feel comfortable, who can listen to them and help them.


We know that the vigilance of parents is an important protective factor for young people. In case you are in the presence, witness or informed of a problem or an unpleasant situation, please consult the camp coordinator and give him a summary of the situation. The coordinator will follow up, intervene and put in place the necessary measures.


Carrefour Nunavut wishes to inform you that non-compliance with the code of conduct contained in the Code of Life may have consequences. The camp chose to apply, depending on the severity of the case, with a trial period between each stage, the procedure listed above.
