The Program provides grant and contribution funding to Canadian organizations to improve supports to help create long-term, comprehensive solutions at the national, regional, and local levels. Additional description and comments: This 3-month project will support the development and submission of a comprehensive project proposal to develop and adapt the “Ikajurniq” (Helping one another) approach as a promising practice for improving the capacity of emergency shelters to deliver culturally-appropriate services for women and children in Nunavut. Collaboration with local partner organizations will allow for the testing of enhanced programming and staff training to promote culturally safe and relevant practices tailored explicitly for Inuit women and children frequenting Nunavut shelters and the Umingmak Centre, a child advocacy centre for children and adolescents who disclose abuse. A rigorous evaluation of Ikajurniq’s capacity and training interventions will be conducted using the Piliriqatigiinniq Partnership model for Community Health Research.
