Research Supports

Hotıì ts’eeda works with data holders to promote access to data for researchers, Indigenous governments, and other partners. Hotıì ts’eeda actively participates in the Canadian Data Platform, and promotes transfer of expertise from other jurisdictions to the Northwest Territories. For example, Hotıì ts’eeda provides funding to its partner organization, the Inuvialuit Regional Corporation, in developing data access tools and approaches. Data access supports honour Indigenous Data Sovereignty and OCAP (ownership, control, access, and possession) principles.

Hotıì ts’eeda can assist with the following:

  • identifying currently available health datasets;
  • accessing available current health data by connecting researchers with data holders;
  • supporting development of tools essential to access data and data analysis;
  • supporting data holders to develop protocols for data access, and;
  • identifying gaps in available data sets.

COVID-19 Data

NWT residents can view local COVID-19 data through the NWT COVID-19 Dashboard – an interactive, visual tool.  Using visualizations such as graphs and maps gives residents access to information that is easier to understand.

Residents can view the following information:

  • New and confirmed cases with daily statistics.
  • Interactive chart showing active and recovered cases including daily and cumulative statistics.
  • Interactive chart showing positive, negative, and pending test results including daily and cumulative statistics.
  • Interactive map breaking down by health region completed tests, people tested, percentage of population tested, and positive cases.
  • Breakdown of symptoms for confirmed cases.
