Saimaniik Toolkit

Project Description

The Saimaniik Toolkit, developed by Pauktuutit Inuit Women of Canada, addresses the overrepresentation of Inuit women in experiencing intimate partner violence (IPV) and the barriers they face in accessing support. It aims to enhance understanding among justice practitioners of the historical and current contexts shaping these experiences, providing practical strategies to help Inuit communities deal with IPV.

Saimaniik Toolkit was developed with input from survivors of IPV, legal professionals, subject matter experts, community members from across Canada. It is designed to:

  • Establish the needs and priorities for survivors of intimate partner violence.
  • Help close the service gaps.
  • Strengthen the understanding of the legal service providers of challenges ad risks faced by Inuit women.
