The Sanarrutic Agreement, the 2002 Community Economic and Development Partnership Agreement, spent 25 years of funding on improving police services, creating parks in Nunavik, economic development and a detention centre. The agreement was signed by the Makivik Corporation, the Kativik regional government and the Quebec government.

The total amount would be approximately $315 million spent on crime prevention programs and the promotion of safe and healthy communities in Nunavik.
