Basic needs are provided by two stores: the Kimik Co-op and the Northern Store. Both stock groceries and some dry goods, and have Automated Teller Machines where visitors can get cash. Kimmirut is a dry community so alcohol is not for sale, and there is a ban on alcohol within a 26 kilometre radius of the hamlet.
There is a health clinic with regular hours, but if treatment is needed on evenings or weekends, you must phone ahead to 867-939-2217. The RCMP also has a detachment in the community and can be reached in an emergency at 867-939-1111, or at 867-939-0123.
