COVID Vaccination in Listuguj

The Listuguj Community Health Services has been offering COVID Vaccinations to the community of Listuguj since the beginning of February 2021. Due to the demand, resources and vaccine expiration limitations, Listuguj Health Services will no longer be administering COVID Vaccinations to the adult population of Listuguj. However, children 12-17 years old who received their first dose from the Listuguj Health Center will be contacted for their second dose.

Vaccines are currently being offered by the CISSS and pharmacies in our region, making vaccination readily accessible to our population. Walk-in Clinics will be held in Pointe-à-la-Croix over the next two weeks. We encourage any community members who wish to receive a first or second dose to do so at these clinics. Both Moderna and Pfizer vaccines will be available. Please refer to the following press release for more details.

In Good Health,

Listuguj Community Health Services

Roadway Upgrades of Caplin Road – Drainage of Caplin Road

Please be advised that Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government has initiated the third phase of the Storm Drainage Upgrades for the Caplin Road Area.  As part of this major project, Caplin Road will have roadway upgrades including new pavement structure, new concrete curbs and new concrete sidewalks.

These upgrades will not only improve the experience for pedestrians and drivers, but it also benefits drainage and storm sewer collection. Small modifications to each driveway will be required and this will be discussed with each homeowner during the construction period.

During the work, heavy equipment will be periodically entering and exiting the work area.  We ask that you remain conscientious of this equipment and that you keep an eye on younger children and pets to avoid any accidents. Traffic on Caplin Road will be closed to thru traffic, but residents will remain open to residents.

The work is anticipated to be completed by early September 2021.

We recognize that the planned work will be an inconvenience, and your patience during these upgrades is greatly appreciated.

If you have any questions concerning this subject, please feel free to contact us at Capital and Infrastructure Tel: (418) 788-3022.

Sincerely,

Listuguj Mi’Gmaq Government
