What to Expect

Your visit will start with a Larga Baffin driver picking you up at the airport upon arrival. Once everyone is off the flight(s) the driver will take you on a 20 minute drive to Larga Baffin. It is strongly advised that you be sure you have your Nunavut Health Card and one piece of photo identification, or two government issued non-photo ID.

Depending on the time of your arrival, you may get to Larga Baffin around supper time where you will be welcomed by others who are already here, and be invited to enjoy a home cooked meal from the kitchen. During your check in at the front desk, you will also be informed of where you will be sleeping. Chances are there will be someone here from your home community. If you have any allergies, especially to any particular foods, or dietary needs please be sure to let the Larga Baffin staff know and they will do everything to ensure you are not put at risk.

If you are to go directly to a hospital upon your arrival, please notify the driver and they will be sure to get you there. During your stay the driver will also take you to each and every medical appointment and pick you up. If you have an appointment that Larga Baffin is not aware of, please be sure to let them know. Larga Baffin strives to get everyone where they need to be in a timely manner.
