Bringing people together to end poverty for good

Our Mission

Our mission is to end hunger and support Inuit food sovereignty throughout Nunavut by developing a sustainable food system for those in need. One that reflects Inuit societal values, supports our well-being, and ensures our access to affordable, nutritious, safe, and culturally preferred foods. 

Our Vision

Ipirauttaaq’s vision is to prevent and end hunger and homelessness in Nunavut. We envision a community of prosperity where everyone experiences safe, affordable housing, food security, health and wellness.

What We Do.

Provide Housing and Supportive Social Services

Shelter

We are working to develop a transitional Inuit Shelter that offers to help shelter Nunavummiut in a more acceptable way, a place of refuge and support to transition.

Youth Initiatives

We empower youth to utilize their extraordinary leadership skills and talents to better themselves and their community by developing and offering many innovative programs that highly encourage, motivate and offer proper mentoring of Inuit Youth.

Relationships

Ottawa has more Inuit than any other city outside of Nunavut. Our street team will be available round the clock to ensure everyone is safe and has a place to be.

Food Insecurity

Food Insecurity

Though food insecurity is a problem throughout Canada, it is hitting Nunavut especially hard where food costs are 5 times higher than the national average. Our plan is to develop and support a proper food bank/soup kitchen in every community.

virtual-care

Mental Health

Using technology we offer some innovative ways to access mental health resources, virtual reality and being able to get a councillor 24/7 remotely is just two of these ways.

Arctic Container Project

Arctic Container Project

By repurposing Shipping Containers we believe that our project will benefit all Nunavummiut. Appropriate affordable housing is not a privilege, it’s a HUMAN RIGHT! Train them and they will come! Our project begins with capacity building. 

Our Values.

We celebrate the potential in people

We put our words into action

We take a wider role in civil society

We believe in rights & responsibilities
