COVID Precautions:
Mamisarvik Healing Centre has been identified as an essential service, allowing us to continue to operate with modifications during the current Ontario COVID-19 restrictions.

We have limited our program to less participants per cycle and have changed the length of our cycles from 8 weeks to 6 weeks.

As an organization, we have developed a Pandemic Response Plan, which Mamisarvik has implemented. This plan includes enhanced cleaning measures, COVID-screening precautions, and the use of PPE by both our staff and clients. Mamisarvik has also changed the visitor policy and modified our physical space and internal protocols to ensure that our clients and staff remain safe throughout the pandemic.

Despite these adjustments, we continue to offer quality recovery and treatment services to the Inuit community.


Mamisarvik Healing Centre is an Inuit-specific, eight-week, residential treatment program for women and men aged 18 years and older. The program is offered in both English and Inuktitut. The supportive and experienced interdisciplinary team incorporates a strengths-based, trauma-informed approach with an emphasis on cultural healing and wellness. Clients attend day-time programming focused on trauma, addiction, Inuit history, anger management, gender-group discussions, assertiveness and continuing care. Elders offer traditional healing knowledge and incorporate on-the-land activities. Staff support clients with evening recreational activities including art therapy, Inuit crafts, life skills, visits to community centres and recovery support groups.

Mamisarvik integrates all of Tungasuvvingat Inuit’s programs to ensure wrap-around supports for participants. These additional supports add to the resources to assist participants are successful.
