In 2015, the Inuuqatigiit Centre for Inuit Children, Youth and Families received funding from the Department for Women and Gender Equality to improve access to and efficiency of system and service delivery for Inuit women and girls affected by violence in the Ottawa area. The project resulted in information and training resources to build the capacity of agencies serving these women.

Over the course of three years, Sannginivut: Strong Voices for Stronger Communities collaborated with Inuit women based in Ottawa and an eight-person advisory committee of local service providers to produce four training modules and handouts for service providers, a Resource Kit for Inuit women informing them of programs and services available in Ottawa and engagement towards a Relationship Agreement with Ottawa Police Service.
