The article offers information on the foundation of the Inuit Quajisarvingat, an Inuit Knowledge Centre that focused on climate change research, launched in Ottawa, Canada. The centre's construction is said to be undertaken to integrate traditional Inuit knowledge into the researches of climate change, life and health in Canada's Arctic. The centre is further made to bridge the gap concerning Inuit and the Arctic's life. Additional details on the objectives of the centre are included.
