Embrace Life Council

Welcome to the web site of Isaksimagit Inuusirmi Katujjiqaatigiit Embrace Life Council. We are a non-profit suicide prevention organization based in Iqaluit, Nunavut.

Suicide in Nunavut is highest amongst Inuit youth, particularly young Inuit males.  As such, we hope that the resources provided on our website will be helpful in teaching you more about suicide and suicide prevention in Nunavut.  Our sections for youth and parents are there to provide you with information and resources that you may need to help yourself, your family, your friends and your community.

We have been working hard on implementing the Nunavut Suicide Prevention Strategy with our Partners and have compiled information on the Embrace Life Council’s progress to May 31, 2013.  

Every year on September 10 we recognize World Suicide Prevention Day / Embrace Life Day across Nunavut.

Please contact us if you require more information or have any ideas for what you would like to see on our website.
