Our vision is to connect the growing number of Inuit youth in Toronto and provide them with a safe place to learn and grow together. Preserving traditional Inuit knowledge and contemporary Inuit experience. Strengthening the relationship between northern and southern communities.
In March of 2016 we became recepients of Trillium's Youth Opportunities Fund, a part of the larger provincial framework called Stepping Up: Improving Youth Outcomes. This program is a unique relationship between our youth - led initiative, the provincial government, and our mentoring organization Tungasuvvingat Inuit.
Toronto Inuit Youth Council
Our council is made up of a dynamic team of young Inuit who are dedicated to building a safe space and welcoming community for Inuit youth in Toronto and the greater Toronto area.
