Supporting Inuit children and youth

Like you, we believe that everyone in Canada deserves access to top-quality medical care. Since 1997, OHSNI has worked daily to connect Northerners to vital, life-enhancing care. We are taking our support for Northern patients and their loved ones to the next level.

Child first initiative

As you may know firsthand, when a child or youth becomes ill or lives with a disability, the entire family is involved in care and needs support. Special needs require special supports, and that is where the Inuit Child First Initiative can assist.
