Canada provides $6.4M to help create Inuit research network

The Government of Canada has provided $6.4M to fund the creation of an Inuit Research Network through the Canadian Institutes of Health Research. The Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami (ITK) stated that the network would help Inuit define research priorities and support self-determination in the face of the unique issues and challenges they face in health research. Obed described how working with researchers while providing an Inuit-specific lens to the work would help better understand and address Inuit health concerns. The funding will be distributed to four Inuit regions and their land claims organizations, which will receive the funding through ITK. The Network builds on ITK’s National Inuit Strategy on Research.
