Canadian Inuit Prospering Through
Unity and Self-Determination
Who We Are
We represent Canada’s 65,000 Inuit, most of whom live in communities spread across Inuit Nunangat, our homeland in Canada.
What We Do
We produce advice, knowledge, strategies, action plans, policy tools and learning resources to protect and advance the rights and interests of Inuit in Canada.
An Indigenous people, we have occupied Inuit Nunangat – roughly 35% of Canada’s landmass and 50% of its coastline – since time immemorial.
Our communities face significant social and economic challenges around issues such as education, health, poverty and housing.
ITK is taking action to address these complex challenges through research, political advocacy, and public outreach and education.
We have made great strides but we need your help to achieve our vision of a Canada in which Inuit are prospering through unity and self-determination. Canada prospers when its most vulnerable citizens prosper. By donating today, you will play a role in advancing the critical work of building a more equitable and prosperous Canada.Donate Now
