Best Practice Research
PMC was tasked by Makigiaqta Inuit Training Corporation to conduct research to identify and recommend wrap-around support programs to help Inuit children succeed in school. The research team identified 87 programs for evaluation from within Inuit Nunangat, elsewhere in Canada, and various other countries with significant Indigenous populations. To augment the research, community consultations were conducted in Iqaluit, Rankin Inlet and Cambridge Bay. All programs were evaluated through the lens of eight selection criteria to identify the ones which best supported school success. The screening process identified nine programs that were recommended for expansion or implementation within Nunavut.
