The Data Initiatives team, under the Health Department, works collaboratively on a number of data–related projects.
The Data Initiatives team’s main activities are:
- coordinating the First Nations Regional Health Survey;
- coordinating the First Nations Regional Social Survey; and
- leading the engagement for the First Nations Data Governance Strategy.
Beyond these two programs, the Data Initiatives team aims to be a resource for Yukon First Nations on data–related questions, and to provide data related resources and advice to projects that involve Yukon First Nations data. The team also ensures to connect external partners to Yukon First Nations governments when it receives data related inquiries.
