(originally posted on February 23, 2017) GGI recently completed a ten-year evaluation of the $2.2 million/year Nunavik Youth Hockey Development Program in Northern Quebec. The full report of the evaluation is available online. The evaluation used decolonized, culturally appropriate methods. It was based on 141 interviews, visits to seven Nunavik communities, observations at tournaments, an analysis of administrative records, case studies and benchmarking. The joint executive committee of Makivik Corporation and the Kativik Regional Government voted to accept the study’s recommendations, including a continuation of support for youth hockey involving a more community-focused approach founded in Inuit culture.
