Steering committees in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region, Nunavut and Nunatsiavut create participatory partnerships between educational institutes, representatives of Inuit communities and organizations involved in developing and conducting the Inuit Health Survey. The steering committees helped to make "Qanuqitpit? Qanuippitali? Kanuivit?" an Inuit specific research project that will discover information about health and wellness that Inuit want to know.
