IRC launches ‘first of its kind’ Inuvialuit research network – Cabin Radio

May 27, 2024

The Inuvialuit Regional Corporation is launching a community research network in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region.

In a news release, the IRC said the network would provide the six Inuvialuit communities – Aklavik, Inuvik, Sachs Harbour, Paulatuk, Tuktoyaktuk and Ulukhaktok – with one community research administrator each.

That administrator will act as a point of contact for “research matters in their home communities and support the implementation of IRC’s climate change, energy, marine, Inuvialuit Knowledge, sociocultural and environmental research programs,” the IRC stated, adding a manager will oversee the program.

Administrators will be responsible for providing opportunities for residents develop skills through the likes of mentorship, job shadowing, courses and workshops.
