MISSION

Empowering Inuit Identity

The mission of the Urban Inuit Identity Project is to educate health care, social service and educational facilities about the cultural uniqueness of our Inuit to provide culturally safe care, and support that empowers Inuit identity so that our Inuit will be fairly represented in the fabric of Canada’s social safety nets.
