Information for Stakeholders

In 2008, the Government of Nunavut (GN), Nunavut Tunngavik Incorporated (NTI), the Royal Canadian Mounted Police V-Division (RCMP) and the Embrace Life Council (IIKELC) formed a partnership to create a strategy to prevent suicide. A review of evidence-based research sought to identify suicide reduction methods from other jurisdictions. The Partners sought input from Nunavummiut through a discussion paper, community consultation and targeted discussions with key stakeholders involved in suicide prevention. In October 2010, the Partners released the Nunavut Suicide Prevention Strategy[1] (NSPS). On March 7, 2016, the Partners released Resiliency Within, a one-year action plan for suicide prevention, as an interim plan to incorporate the jury’s recommendations of the 2015 Coroner’s Inquest and engage stakeholders for a longer term plan.
