We are a Canadian charity, based in Iqaluit, serving all of Nunavut. Our hope is that all Nunavut children and youth obtain standards of living and services similar to the rest of Canada in terms of educational, health related, social opportunities and well-being.
Since 2012, we have supported youth to:
• Know where to reach out for help,
• Learn healthy ways to cope,
• Create safe spaces for youth to talk about the heavy issues they face as Inuit youth in Canada,
• Attend cultural camps,
• Access virtual therapy services,
• And more
We currently house two services that provide critical services that aim to support our children and youth in obtaining equitable standards of living.
In 2019, we opened Nunavut’s first centre of excellence in response to child abuse in Nunavut, the Umingmak Centre. Please visit www.umingmakcentre.ca for more information.
In 2020, we opened the first Service Navigation office in Nunavut to support families in accessing Inuit Child First Initiative (ICFI) funding.
ACYF is open to receiving proposals for future community Initiatives. Contact us for more information.
