OTTAWA – Seven innovative teams from across Canada’s North were awarded a share of over $2.7 million for their groundbreaking by the North and for the North projects. The prizes were awarded during a celebration held tonight in Ottawa.
“The Arctic Inspiration Prize is the largest annual prize in Canada, and how wonderful that it’s focus is on the North and Northern excellence. These seven laureates are now well on their way to achieving their dreams,” said Wally Schumann, Chair of the Arctic Inspiration Prize Charitable Trust. “Their projects are outstanding examples of people from diverse backgrounds and areas of expertise coming together to use their skills and knowledge to bring about the change they want to see for their communities.”
The $1 million prize went to the Pilimmaksaijuliriniq Project, which will build additional mental health competencies and Inuit wellness traditional teachings to support the delivery of community-based programming across Inuit Nunangat. This project will support community organizers, champions, activists and trainers who deliver community-based programming with the goals of fostering, protecting and building the resilience of all community members.
In addition to the $1 million prize, 3 prizes were awarded in the AIP category that awards up to $500,000 to each laureate team, and three prizes were awarded in the Youth category, worth up to $100,000 each.
Lessons from our Elders was awarded $450,000 for their initiative to engage high school students in identifying historic artifacts cited in stories told by community Elders. By working with ten communities over a one-year period, this project aims to produce a virtual exhibition with artifacts that most Northerners would otherwise never see, and stories that most Northerners would otherwise never hear.
Shäwthän Näzhì: Recovery Support Program was awarded $500,000 to provide intensive and on-going after care support following attendance at treatment programs. This three-year project will include capacity building within the Yukon Indigenous wellness practitioner community, an intensive recovery support program and model sharing combined with train the trainer implementation.
Nunavik organizations and communities have united to create a new research governance organization, named Atanniuvik, which will advance Nunavik Inuit self-determination in research. This project won $500,000 to focus on building the human capacity at the heart of Atanniuvik’s operations, including ensuring that Atanniuvik is run by and for Inuit.
In the Youth category, three projects demonstrated their outstanding commitment to making a difference in their communities.
N’’tsaÜw Chu’ Kedts’edán Kù Traditional Camp was awarded $100,000 to build a traditional camp on the Porter Creek Secondary School campus, helping the school and the greater community to engage in authentic cultural programming. The camp will build capacity in educators and help students see themselves and their cultural teachings as valued.
While preparing for a large Circumpolar Northern Games event in Inuvik, and in light of mental health and spiritual crisis in many northern communities, Northern Games Youth Collaboration “Inuvialuit Piuyausiq” won $100,000 to hold a Northern Youth Development program in Tuktoyaktuk, helping the next generation of leaders promoting healthy activity and cultural connectedness by focusing on mentoring youth and highlighting volunteerism.
The Nunavut Youth Creative Collective was awarded $100,000 to develop their agency that proposes working as a social enterprise to increase Inuit representation in advertising, media and other digital forms like social media and website design. The Nunavut Youth Creative Collective would also look to the communities to hire creative talent among youth community members that cannot find meaningful work in their chosen field without having to leave their homes.
The ceremony was hosted by Andrea Brazeau and Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory and featured performances by Vision Quest, Beatrice Deer, and Terry Uyarak under the masterful artistic direction of Leela Gilday.
