Life in the North
A traumatic past
The legacy of the residential school system has left a mark on families who struggle with social issues as well as having the highest rate of suicides.
The population growth rate in Nunavut is 3 times the national average. The stress on the system creates many challenges.
Health and wellness
Northerners face challenges due to income and housing discrepencies, access to healthy food, and
culturally relevant counselling.
