Frequently asked questions?

What are Inuit-specific services?

There is a need for services that recognize the requirements of Inuit residing in Manitoba. Inuit culture is unique in Canada - and unique within the Aboriginal population. Inuit need culturally specific support, particularly in health, housing, education, and development of cultural programs.

What is MIA and Ikayuqtiit?

Manitoba Inuit Association (MIA) is the representative organization for Inuit living in Manitoba. MIA provides dynamic Inuit-specific programs and services that embody Inuit principles and values, and ensure opportunities to strengthen connections to Inuit culture, language and community while living in urban and rural/remote areas of Manitoba.

Ikayuqtiit ("Inuit helping Inuit") is an Inuit-run charity in Manitoba. A grassroots organization established in 2018, guided by Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit (IQ): "that which the Inuit have always known to be true." IQ is grounded in the maligait ("the four big laws") that strive, among other things, to maintain balance and harmony in Inuit life.

Do you work with individuals and familiies?

Yes, we work with all Inuit individuals and families.
