The proposed project is innovative and will reach and target a largely underserved population: Inuit. Pauktuutit is responding to the need for public education, awareness, harm reduction and prevention initiatives that align with the social context of Inuit knowledge, attitudes, and behaviours around cannabis consumption, and in the context of a shifting Northern health, social and economic environment.
The research from the first phase of the project will be translated into culturally relevant and Inuit-specific key messages and multimedia resources for a FASD public awareness and anti-stigma campaign.
Pauktuutit is working with Indigenous services Canada (ISC) to support a project that will inform and advise the Government of Canada on economic relief, stimulus and recovery planning targeted for Inuit women in business.
This is an open call to individuals, firms, or organizations to provide a comprehensive proposal to create a plan for gathering data in Inuit communities that bears in mind the current context and challenges posed by social distancing and restricted travel. The successful applicant will complete the second portion of Phase 1 research in partnership with Pauktuutit.
