Purpose: This project is the second phase of an initiative to implement the Umingmak Child and Youth Support Centre in Iqaluit, Nunavut. Building on the findings of its feasibility study, the organization will obtain decision-making authorities' support to proceed with negotiations and agreements on the governance structure; enhance the working relationships between key agencies and departments; develop memorandums of understanding and operational agreements to streamline access to medical and mental health services for children and youth victims of abuse; and establish a community-based Advisory Committee with representation from youth, caregivers and Elders to ensure that the Centre will be a culturally sensitive space where children and non-offending family members can receive support, crisis intervention and referrals for mental health and medical treatment.
