NATIONAL INUIT ACTION PLAN on Missing and Murdered Inuit Women, Girls and 2SLGBTQQIA+ People

The National Inuit Action Plan is dedicated to missing and murdered Inuit women, girls and 2SLGBTQQIA+ people and their families, friends and communities that have experienced these relentless tragedies. 

Champions of this cause are often the families of missing and murdered Inuit women and girls. 

The work we bring forward is grounded in creating positive change so no Inuk woman, girl, or any Inuk identifying as 2SLGBTQQIA+ has to experience this kind of violence and hardship. 

Addressing Racism in the Health Care System

Racism is an experience acutely felt by many Inuit women. This is especially true when they engage with the health care system where colonial and racist policies converge with erroneous assumptions based on negative stereotypes about Indigenous people.
