What role will outside experts play?
Inuit are dedicated to changing the way our data are collected, controlled and shared. The Qanuippitaa? National Inuit Health Survey will be self-determined and Inuit-governed. Partnerships with those who respect an Inuit self-determined process will be sought to ensure that the goal of delivering high-quality data is met. One of the goals of the health survey is to build the infrastructure and skill set required for Inuit to control all facets of survey-taking and research on a long-term, ongoing basis. Meaningful partnerships will help build this capacity through the development of training, information sharing and knowledge exchanges.
