Ilitaqsiniq’s Inu-vative programs deliver quality, holistic learning opportunities relevant to today’s Inuit. Building on what Inuit have always known to be true, our programs apply traditional skills to contemporary life and empower Inuit with the agency to be strong participants in an evolving society. Pride in our culture and identity is a core element of Ilitaqsiniq programs.
All programs are tailored to community needs and delivered in partnership with a range of committed funders and community champions.
