Youth, a priority

UTHC prioritizes prevention and puts a strong emphasis on youth development. Some 60% of Nunavik residents are under 30 years of age, and 34% of them are less than 14 years old. Consequently, over the last few years, the Centre has developed several early detection and early intervention programs to offer appropriate counseling services to both the youth and the parents

Training Inuit healthcare workers

UTHC’s mission is to encourage Inuits to train in order to become self-sufficient health care professionals who can take over the positions currently held by employees from south of the province. Presently, about 30% of our employees are Inuit

To fulfill its goal, the UTHC offers a certain number of practical training opportunities in Nunavik : midwife, administrative technician, community worker, educator, manager, pharmacy technical assistant, etc.
