Why it is that Inuit in Ottawa have access to Inuit specific services (ranging from low cost housing and a community centre to addictions rehab and health services - all Inuit specific and in Inuktitut) whereas Inuit in Montreal, just two hours away, have little or none? This is the main question being addressed by a project funded by a five year SSHRC Insight grant entitled 'Out of place in nunalijjuaq: effecting social change with Montreal Inuit through participatory action research' (nunalijjuaq means 'big place where people live' in Inuktitut).

The project is led by Dr Mark Watson of Concordia University and is being run in collaboration with major Inuit, Aboriginal and Municipal institutions. It is developing new urban histories, delving into comparative municipal politics and undertaking needs assessments.
