Tungasuvvingat Inuit is proud to release in partnership with St. Michael’s Hospital Our Health Counts Inuit Adults in Ottawa. The goal of the Our Health Counts was to work in partnership with Indigenous Partners to create and develop a baseline of population health data for our Urban Inuit population living in Ottawa, which would be immediately accessible, useful and culturally relevant to all levels of government and Inuit organizations needing this valuable data-set.
“This report is a first for future longitudinal studies for our urban Inuit population and
today we have achieved a major goal by publishing this report back to our community members who participated in this study. We truly thank the community for your participation and allowing us to gather this data to inform us in future health programming” said Jason LeBlanc Executive Director of Tungasuvvingat Inuit.
