Indigenous Youth Connection to Culture is an evidence-based program to support First Nations youth build stronger connections to their culture, families and Elders. The $5 million investment will be allocated to 12 communities over three financial years (2021-22 – 2023-24). The co-designed community activities strengthen youth cultural identity and cultural continuity as a source of strength, resilience and pride as protective factors against youth suicide and self-harm. This formative evaluation will support reflective practice and program improvement; and provide insights from key stakeholders on what worked, what could be done differently, and what changed as a result of IYCC activities.
