Inuit experience systemic discrimination within provincial and territorial healthcare systems. The negative effects of discrimination within healthcare systems are compounded by experiences of systemic discrimination within other public services administered by governments.
Canadian Inuit Prospering Through
Unity and Self-Determination
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
