Data collection in Iqaluit – Round 1


Priscilla Arctic April 2011 006

The project’s first interview in Iqaluit, the capital of Nunavut (population 6,699, Statistics Canada, 2011 census) took place with an Inuit elder in late February and was followed in March by a round of interviews with participants from the justice and health sectors and community organizations. Iqaluit (“Place of many Fish”) is on the south coast of Baffin Island and is a gateway to the Arctic. The next round of interviews in Iqaluit will take place in April and May. An Inuktitut-speaking interpreter from Iqaluit will join me to assist with interviews involving unilingual Inuit elders.
