Today is World Suicide Prevention Day. The National Inuit Youth Council held their 6th Annual Inuit Celebration of Life event to recognize this special day. The event was held on the front steps of Parliament Hill. Unfortunately, Inuit suicide statistics are very bleak. Suicide rates among children and teens in the Inuit community is 30 times higher than the rest of Canada. Inuit are working to raise awareness, increase support and promote the “Celebration of Life” campaign.
