Inuit Health Research: Qanuinngitsiarutiksait (tools for the safety & well-being of Inuit)

MIA has growing partnerships and working relationships with key stakeholders and organizations both in Manitoba and Nunavut.

Since 2017, we have been partnering with Ongomiizwin (clearing a path for generations to come) Research Department, which is the largest Indigenous education and health unit in Canada; and the Manitoba Centre for Health Policy. MIA has also worked with members from the Manitoba government, the government of Nunavut, Aboriginal Health & Wellness Centre of Wpg., Women's Health Clinic, Manitoba Metis Federation, members of the Northern Medical Unit, WRHA, University of Winnipeg; NEIHR; University of Manitoba; Aqqiumavvik Society; and several others.

MIA is guided by IQ Principles (Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit) which means "what we know to be true", and our Inuit Elders Advisory Councils (Manitoba and Arviat, NU). Inuit perspectives are essential to gathering research data to ensure Inuit specific research and programming. MIA is working on several research projects simultaneously on key health topics. There are many factors that influence the social determinants of Inuit health, which we need to address.

We look forward to our future, working with Elders, knowledge keepers, Inuit community members, governments, and other organizations to help make the changes that will enable Inuit families to be safe, healthy, and well. It is a privilege to work with such knowledgeable, inspiring people! Qujannamiik,
