In 2017 we began a 4-5 year project with the objective of describing the health of Inuit in southern Quebec. The need for health information about people living outside of Inuit Nunagnat is clear: About one quarter of Inuit now live in the south and there is almost no information about their health and social conditions. Likewise, there are almost no services oriented to Inuit in southern Quebec. The flow of people leaving the north is increasing and often a reflection of health and social issues in home communities. The Qanuikkat Siqinirmiut project thus seeks to generate the knowledge needed to better understand and address the health and wellbeing of people in the south. In this paper we will present to progress to date in the project.
