Inunnguiniq Parenting Program
This 20 week program is a parenting support and intervention program that is based on Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit which concentrates on the wisdom, skills and ways Inuit have had for a very long time. INUNNGUINIQ: means making of a human being and refers to the traditional wisdom of child-rearing practices.
The OICC parenting program offers services for parents/guardians of Inuit children including:
• Women’s Healing Circles;
• Men’s Group;
• Inuit focused Parenting Workshops;
• Parent Counselling; and
• Home Visits.
The parenting program is culturally specific and respects the parenting styles and needs of parents/guardians raising Inuit children in an urban setting. The focus is to provide services parents/guardians want and need to so they can raise confident, capable, and proud Inuit children.
Every Wednesday from 5:00 to 8:00 pm at the OICC, 230 McArthur Avenue
