Santé et bien-être des Siqinirmiut (Inuit du Sud) : Regard sur les besoins et les ressources visant à soutenir la communauté inuit urbaine du sud du Québec
septembre 28, 2023 | On line via Zoom – Présentation en français
More and more Inuit are living temporarily or permanently in urban areas across Canada. In Quebec, it is estimated that around 20% of Inuit live outside Nunavik. However, despite the growing proportion of Inuit living in urban areas, studies about them remain limited. In addition, health services designed for Inuit living in the South are virtually non-existent. To fill these gaps, the Qanuikkat Siqinirmiut? research project has set itself the goal of building knowledge on the Siqinirmiut and supporting the development of resources and services specific to this community.
The aim of this conference is to present the main results of the Qanuikkat Siqinirmiut? project, as well as a study on supporting the healthy development of urban Inuit children, also part of this project. Finally, the conference will present the Qavvivik clinic, a family and community health center for urban Inuit that recently opened its doors in Montreal.
