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.

Pauktuutit Inuit Women of Canada and Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami are encouraged that work is underway with the Government of Canada toward the co-development of a National Action Plan to implement the Calls for Justice of the Final Report of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG).
Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami hopes to learn more in the coming days about how the funds outlined in the document will be allocated to Inuit specifically, as many of the investments announced yesterday were framed as general Indigenous investments.
If Inuit children experience unmet needs related to COVID-19, families can submit a request to the Inuit Child First Initiative to seek additional support.
The Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami Annual General Meeting took place by videoconference this week, with participants from all regions of Inuit Nunangat. The videoconference tested the bandwidth limitations of many representatives, spread across multiple time zones from Inuvik and Ulukhaktok in the west to Nain and Postville in the east.
