Research Report: Background for an Inuit Children and Youth Strategy for Ontario–Final Report

January 2015
The Ottawa Inuit Children’s Centre is engaging with the Ministry of Children and Youth Services to develop an Inuit-specific element of a provincial Aboriginal Children and Youth Strategy. To help inform that strategy, literature on promising practices was reviewed.
Most of the literature consulted for this study is Inuit-specific, however there are also references to some Indigenous studies which specifically included Inuit communities and/or participants.
The review includes both promising and recommended practices. This means that some of the practices reported here have been tested and the literature summarizes the experience of communities, clients and practitioners with these practices. The review also includes practices that Inuit organizations and/or community members recommend, which may be based on their experience or on what would be effective in their judgment.

Nipivut – Our Voice

In January 2009, the OICC received funding from Indian and Northern Affairs Canada (Urban Aboriginal Strategy) to conduct a community needs assessment for Inuit children 0-18 years of age and their families living in Ottawa. The purpose of the project was to collect information from parents that would support long-term planning, enhance program and resource development, increase collaboration, raise awareness and improve advocacy.
