Our agency name is now Inuuqatigiit
In partnership with parents and the community the Ottawa Inuit Children’s Centre, now known as Inuuqatigiit -- Centre for Inuit Children, Youth and Families, fosters strong and proud Inuit children, youth and families. We are in the process of changing the agency's name.
To provide Inuit children and youth with a learning environment that will enhance their overall development; to foster positive parenting through support and education; and to promote the retention of the Inuit culture and language.
To serve Inuit children, youth and families.
Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit are the values that are understood to be “the Inuit way of doing things: the past, present and future knowledge, experience and values of Inuit society”. The Ottawa Inuit Children’s Centre, Inuuqatigiit, reflects these values in the way we work.
Our Centre serves Inuit children, youth and families in the southern urban setting of the City of Ottawa. In partnership with parents and the community, the OICC, Inuuqatigiit, fosters strong Inuit children, youth and families by providing a learning environment that will enhance children's overall well-being, adaptability and strength in a proud Inuit cultural environment.
We believe that children deserve a nurturing and caring child centred environment that supports the Inuit culture and language. We believe that parents are a child’s first and most important teacher. Our program supports the whole family as children are celebrated for the unique and special people that they are.
We work in partnership with families to ensure that children receive the best care and early education possible.
