Nunavut Suicide Prevention Strategy Action Plan

This companion document is the result of two years of searching for the best possible ways to prevent suicide in Nunavut. Like the Strategy, it is based on and guided by the Implementation Committee and the public’s vision for a healthier Nunavut.

The Action Plan outlines concrete steps to be taken to reach a Vision for Nunavut in which the rate of suicide is the same as the rate for Canada as a whole—or lower. This would envision a Nunavut in which children and youth grow up in a safer and more nurturing environment, in which people have the skills needed to overcome challenges, make positive choices, and enter into constructive relationships. This will also be a Nunavut where families, communities, and all levels of government work together to provide a wide-reaching and culturally appropriate range of services for those in need.
