The Nunivaat Research Program

As a public administration, The Kativik Regional Government (KRG) has a need for accurate statistical information, which is a requisite tool of public-decision makers. The Kativik Regional Government administers several complex economic, social and cultural programs for which valid statistical support is necessary.

In the early 2000, the Kativik Regional Government has expressed the desire to establish a Nunavik statistics program. Given its experience in this particular field, the Kativik Regional Government has requested the assistance of the Canada Research Chair in Comparative Aboriginal Conditions, at the Université Laval, to assist in the development of a response to this need.

The Kativik Regional Government wished the Nunavik Statistics Program to include a socioeconomic databank easily accessible on internet, and a research program devoted to the socioeconomic situation of the Nunavik region. This research program would include the design and the execution of special statistical surveys, and the preparation of statistical reports.

The Nunivaat Research Program started in 2005 and has continued since then. It is devoted to the development of knowledge through statistical tools and researches, in order to support public decision in Nunavik.
