Inuit Research Advisors, or IRAs, are the link between Inuit communities and research.
There is one Inuit Research Advisor (IRA) in each Inuit Region. The IRAs are knowledgeable and resourceful contacts for their regions. They are available to:
The IRA positions are co-funded by ArcticNet, the Northern Contaminants Program at Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada, as well as their host organizations. In the past, for several years Nasivvik Centre for Inuit Health and Changing Environments also contributed funds. The National IRA Coordinator is located at ITK.
