The Qaujigiartiit Health Research Centre is an independent, non-profit community research institute that was founded in 2006 by Nunavummiut, for Nunavummiut, to answer the health questions of our communities.


Our mission is to enable health research to be conducted locally, by northerners, and with communities in a safe, supportive, culturally-sensitive and ethical environment as well as promote the inclusion of Inuit and Western epistemologies and methodologies (ways of knowing and doing) in addressing health concerns, creating healthy environments, and improving the health of Nunavummiut.
