Ullivik is the patient boarding house for Nunavik Inuit travelling south for medical purposes. The boarding home has 143 beds, however since it opened, it has been filled to capacity and nearby hotels have to be used for patients and their escorts. Last year's budget for Ullivik was 15 million dollars. Some delegates raised concerns about the operation of the boarding house.
