QEC approved to build new head office in Baker Lake

The Honourable Jeannie Ehaloak, Minister responsible for Qulliq Energy Corporation (QEC), has granted permission for QEC to proceed with the construction of a new head office in Baker Lake. The Corporation’s business activities are served out of the head office located in Baker Lake and the corporate office in Iqaluit.

“Currently, there are 45 employees working in three different offices in the community,” said Minister Ehaloak. “A new head office will increase QEC’s operational efficiency as all Baker Lake administration staff could be accommodated in one building with adequate boardroom and training space.”

Construction of the new head office is expected to be completed by fall 2021 with an estimated cost of $13 million. The project is also expected to resolve office shortage issues when the lease to QEC’s largest office space ends.

“QEC looks forward to increasing employee job satisfaction with a unified workspace, better serving our valued customers across the territory, and continued collaboration with the community,” said Bruno Pereira, QEC’s President and Chief Executive Officer.
