Over the past four years, the Climate Change and Health Adaptation Program has conducted a series of capacity building and knowledge sharing workshops in the Yukon, Northwest Territories, Nunavut and Ottawa for Inuit and northern First Nation community members, governments and organizations. The purpose of the workshops was to share experiences and knowledge on climate change and health issues that communities are facing and to discuss how they can address these issues. It was also a time for participants to learn about Health Canada’s funding program, ask questions, and work on an actual proposals to submit to the program for funding. The workshops strengthened partnerships and enabled the program to align with the needs and wants of communities. The program is planning future capacity building workshops where needed.
