- McGill Inuit health survey beginning soon
An Inuit health survey is taking place across the northern parts of the
country, with the team of researchers finishing their work in Nunatsiavut.
The survey, which begins Aug. 10, is being performed by the McGill
University Centre for Indigenous Peoples' Nutrition and Environment. More
than 1,000 people in 20 communities in Canada's north will take part.
The research team will travel on board the Canadian Coast Guard Ship
Amundsen as they do the research. The survey will begin at Tuktoyaktuk and
continue eastwards through the Inuvialuit Settlement region, before going to
Nunavut and Nunatsiavut.
The goal of the survey is to provide insight into the health of Inuit after
changes in food choices, lifestyle and the physical environment.
