What is Qanuippitaa? National Inuit Health Survey (QNIHS)?

Qanuippitaa? National Inuit Health Survey is an ongoing Inuit-owned and Inuit-determined, survey of Inuit health and wellbeing that will be conducted every five years. The first cycle of data collection began in 2021. The QNIHS will provide an overall picture of the health and wellbeing of Inuit in all regions–what is going well and what areas need to be improved. For the first time, this national survey will bring Inuit from across Inuit Nunangat together in partnership. The QNIHS data collection will take place in every community in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region, Nunavut, Nunavik, and Nunatsiavut.
