The National Inuit Youth Council of Canada in conjunction with many other Inuit organizations gathered in a beautifuly harmonious and convivial afternoon on parliament hill on september 10th 2012. They stood all together to underline the realities of high suicides rates within northern Canadian Inuit communities on this world suicide prevention day.
Helped by Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami (ITK) who is the national Inuit organization in Canada, representing four Inuit regions – Nunatsiavut (Labrador), Nunavik (northern Quebec), Nunavut, and the Inuvialuit Settlement Region in the Northwest Territories.
A special thanks to everyone that made that day possible,
