The Aaqitauvik Healing Centre is located in beautiful Quaqtaq, Quebec and has been dedicated to healing of the body, soul, and spirit since it’s opening in 2008.

Why is the AHC necessary?

As a result of institutional abuses like residential schools, patients sent down south to TB sanatoriums, relocations, dog slaughters and other life’s hurts, un- dealt issues, shock and trauma, today many Inuit suffer from the many effects of unresolved trauma, including but not limited to:

  • Lateral violence (when an oppressed group turns on itself and begins to violate each other)
  • Suicide
  • Depression
  • Trauma and Abuse
  • Cycle of Abuse
  • Alcohol and Drug Abuse and Addiction
  • Cultural Dissonance
  • Loss of Inuit Values
  • Poverty
  • Lack of Parenting Skills
  • Lack of capacity to build and sustain healthy families and communities

At Aaqitauvik, our heart is to give hope and restoration to Inuit in Northern communities through healing and training workshops.
