One of the greatest challenges of Nunavut’s health care system is its reliance on short-term professionals, many of whom are not oriented to the Inuit historical/cultural context and the organization of health care in the territory.

Hey Nunavummiut! There is a funding opportunity available from Status of Women Canada that closes in April 2020:
Women and Gender Equality Canada (WAGE) is committed to advancing equality for people of all sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions. One way we work towards this is with the creation of the LGBTQ2 Community Capacity Fund.
This Fund’s objective is to build stronger capacity and networks of LGBTQ2 community organizations to advance LGBTQ2 equality across Canada.
We are working on a project to understand and address our unique education needs in Nunavut. We will explore student perspectives on their secondary and post-secondary education experience and elementary school staff on their perspectives of supports and barriers. This work builds on the first three year phase of this project which, in part, focused on perspectives from high school staff perspectives. It is our hope that this information can be used to inform education initiatives for Nunavummiut and ensure our education system is meeting the needs of our young students. This is a 2-year project funded by the Nunavut General Monitoring Program.
This project has been registered with the Nunavut Research Institute #01006-17.
We will not share any information that will identify any one person. We do plan to share anonymous general findings from the project with all of the government and non-government agencies, community organizations, and DEAs that can benefit from learning about student perspectives on the education system in Nunavut and how students can be better supported.
To better understand the experiences of our students in Nunavut, we have 5 components to this project:
1) Survey current grade 12 students about their supports and school experience.
2) Survey current Nunavummiut receiving FANS and ALTS
3) Conduct narrative interviews with recent youth who left school without graduating and their parents/caregivers.
4) Interview key informants like school staff who volunteer to talk about ways to support students to achieve success in school.
5) Learn more from parents about supporting and improving attendance among young schoolchildren.
Participation is completely voluntary.
