How is this survey different from others?
Inuit are asked to take part in many surveys. Some are carried out by the federal government, universities and others. Most surveys are not developed by Inuit. The questions asked are not always relevant to Inuit and do not focus on our priorities. The Qanuippitaa? questions will reflect the feedback received from discussions with Inuit on our health priorities. All of the information will be controlled by Inuit. In addition, one of the goals of the survey is to provide training and resources to help develop the skills required by Inuit to conduct our own surveys on a regular, ongoing basis. This helps ensure that Inuit have greater control over research and that survey and research-related expertise and jobs stay in Inuit communities.
