Vision

Embrace Life Council envisions a suicide-free Nunavut. We envision a territory rich in Inuit culture and language and grounded in the strength of Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit.


Mission

First and foremost, our mission is to encourage Nunavummiut to embrace life. We support individuals and groups in Nunavut to take well-informed action to prevent suicide within the three major timeframes: prevention, intervention, and postvention. We do this through education and awareness programs and through community capacity strengthening activities. We are committed to action that is grounded in Inuit values and informed by current suicide prevention research.
