About the Qanuippitaa? National Inuit Health Survey

Qanuippitaa? National Inuit Health Survey (QNIHS) is an ongoing Inuit-owned survey that will be conducted every five years. The Nunavut component of the survey will begin in early 2024.

The QNIHS will provide an overall picture of the health and well-being of Inuit in all Regions, what is going well and what needs to be improved. The QNIHS survey will take place in every community across Inuit Nunangat – Nunavut, the Inuvialuit Settlement Region, Nunavik, and Nunatsiavut. The survey will ask the same questions across all regions of Inuit Nunangat, as well as questions specific to Nunavut. Participants will be randomly selected from all Inuit in Nunavut.

Preference will be given to Inuit enroled under the Nunavut Agreement.
