A Cold Place to Live Outside: Homelessness in the Canadian Arctic

This film is a part of a research project being lead by Dr. Michael Young in the School of Humanitarian Studies. It documents some of the problems associated with homelessness, addictions and mental health issues in Inuvik, Northwest Territories and explores the causes and consequences of the problem from the perspectives of homeless persons themselves, health and social service providers and government. The video does not reach specific conclusions rather, it is intended to encourage dialogue and foster the development of strategies to effectively respond to the situation.
