Welcome to the Centre for INUIT Health and Changing Environments

"Nasivvik is an Inuktitut word that means vantage point. It can be a height of land, a hummock of ice, or any place of elevation that affords an observer a clear view of their surroundings to make good observations." Zebedee Nungak

The Nasivvik Centre for Inuit Health and Changing Environments is a multidisciplinary research and training centre funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research-Institute of Aboriginal Peoples' Health. The Nasivvik Centre is focused on building capacity in Inuit health research through trainee support and strategic funding initiatives in key environmental health areas of importance to Inuit communities.

The Nasivvik Centre, one of nine Network Environments for Aboriginal Health Research (NEAHR) funded across Canada is based at Laval and Trent Universities, with Inuit Research Advisors in each Canadian Inuit region. The Centre actively engages Inuit and non Inuit students at the undergraduate and graduate levels as well as community individuals in research and training focused on the Inuit regions of the Canadian North. Activities are ongoing in Nunatsiavut, Nunavik, Nunavut and the Inuvialuit Settlement Region, moving towards building capacity through training, education and research by:

  • creating an environment in which Inuit communities and researchers can cooperatively identify critical environmental health issues and conduct the appropriate training and innovative research needed to address them;
  • attracting Inuit and other youth to pursue environmental health-related sciences in undergraduate and graduate education and become engaged in research in their region;
  • providing opportunities to support Inuit training and capacity enhancement in environmental health education and research;
  • training individuals as local environmental health researchers to identify and address community issues;
  • communicating, disseminating and supporting the understanding and use of research results and information generated through the Centre;
  • enhancing capacity for involvement in these issues at the local, regional, national and international levels.
