Community/Social/CART Programs

Created in 2009 the Community Action Research Team is guided by the Healing Winds Advisory Committee to develop social and wellness programs based on qualitative and quantitative for youth, elders, and community members in the Tłı̨chǫ region.

"Through Research-to-Action projects, CART will integrate knowledge of the Tłı̨chǫ values and beliefs throughout the Tłı̨chǫ Government in our community programs, resource materials, media and community events."

The Work Of Tłı̨chǫ CART

Our work emerges from the mission of the Tłı̨chǫ Community Services Agency to provide:

"...services to the people of our communities, support them in the task of strengthening their families, promote the knowledge and skills they need to survive today and model the values they need to live in harmony with their families, our communities and our land."

Our team will reflect the importance of the Tłı̨chǫ culture and community in everything we do.

CART Goals...

  • Researching, organizing, implementing and evaluating research based activities that strengthen community well-being and unity
  • Ensuring these research based activities are delivered within an appropriate cultural context for community services within the Tłı̨chǫ region
  • Use strengths of the Tłı̨chǫ Government and the assets of the community to deliver these activities in a positive, affirming manner

All of our programs are based on community based research activities that provide TCSA with the evidence and priorities for action. Much of our research is conducted in partnership with CIET canada.

The Healing Wind Advisory Committee are a group of Tłı̨chǫ services providers working in child and family services, education and healthcare, and elders. They ensure the relevance, ethical and cultural appropriateness of CART activities.
