Abstract
INTRODUCTION: Food insecurity is a chronic problem affecting Inuit communities. The most comprehensive assessment of Inuit food security to-date, the Inuit Health Survey, reported that 70% of Inuit pre-school children lived in ?food insecure? households. Food banks and soup kitchens are relatively new in the Arctic but the number of users is increasing. Little is known about the experience and determinants of food insecurity among food program users who are often among the most marginalized (socially and economically) in communities. The use of participatory research methods when working in the north of Canada can promote meaningful knowledge exchange with community members and this approach was used in the present ?Photovoice? research. Photovoice uses photography to develop a baseline understanding of an issue, in this case the experience and determinants of food insecurity among users of community food programs in Iqaluit, Nunavut. The target population includes those who face significant social and economic marginalization, an often neglected group in Arctic food systems research. METHODS: Eight regular users of food programs were recruited and engaged in a Photovoice research project to document factors determining their daily food consumption. The research method was introduced in workshops and discussion included the ethical concerns related to photography and how to take pictures. Participants were supplied with digital cameras, and asked to answer the following question using photography: 'What aspects of your everyday life affect what you eat and how much you have to eat?'. In the final workshop, photographs were discussed among the group and participants identified key themes in the photographs, offering an understanding of food insecurity from their perspectives. The group then discussed what should be done with the knowledge gained. RESULTS: Factors improving food security were the customary systems for sharing ?country food?, and the presence of social support networks in the community, such as the Food Bank, the Soup Kitchen and the Tukisigiarvik Center. Factors identified as negatively affecting food security were the high cost of food in the Arctic, and substance abuse. The participants decided by consensus whether and how the knowledge from this project would be disseminated. They decided that a museum exhibit of the photographs in the summer of 2010 and promotion of the results among policy-makers in Nunavut were of high priority. CONCLUSION: The use of participatory research approaches such as Photovoice offers promise for exploring food security issues among similarly disadvantaged and vulnerable populations elsewhere in the Arctic. This approach was found to be a useful method for gathering and sharing research data because the data was generated and analyzed by the participants. The clear and concise messages developed by the participants can be used to inform policy. This research method can assist in making a valuable contribution to health research, both in the Arctic and worldwide, because it promotes an understanding of the experiences of individuals from their own perspective.

Abstract
It is anticipated that information collected by this project will be useful for First Nations communities and health professionals in the development of dietary advice and food guidance for First Nations at the regional level. Also, data on background exposures to persistent organic pollutants, trace metals, pesticides, and pharmaceutical products is essential for First Nations in developing a baseline for future studies. This study, called the First Nations Food, Nutrition and Environment Study (FNFNES), is being implemented region by region over a 10-year period, which started in British Columbia in 2008, in partnership with 21 randomly selected First Nations on-reserve communities. The BC regional study was implemented over a two-year period ending in 2010, and its findings are summarized in this report.

Abstract
Food security comprises availability, accessibility, acceptability (by the population) and adequacy (for human health) of food. A number of federal and territorial legislative and policy initiatives impinge on food production or acquisition as well: the Federal Food Mail program and Firearms Act, and the Nunavut Social Assistance, Hunter Support, country food development and gas subsidy programs. The paper concludes with policy recommendations regarding meeting the four conditions of food security.

Abstract
A growing body of literature examines the vulnerability, risk, resilience, and adaptation of indigenous peoples to climate change. This synthesis of literature brings together research pertaining to the impacts of climate change on sovereignty, culture, health, and economies that are currently being experienced by Alaska Native and American Indian tribes and other indigenous communities in the United States. The knowledge and science of how climate change impacts are affecting indigenous peoples contributes to the development of policies, plans, and programs for adapting to climate change and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. This report defines and describes the key frameworks that inform indigenous understandings of climate change impacts and pathways for adaptation and mitigation, namely, tribal sovereignty and self-determination, culture and cultural identity, and indigenous community health indicators. It also provides a comprehensive synthesis of climate knowledge, science, and strategies that indigenous communities are exploring, as well as an understanding of the gaps in research on these issues. This literature synthesis is intended to make a contribution to future efforts such as the 4th National Climate Assessment, while serving as a resource for future research, tribal and agency climate initiatives, and policy development.

Abstract
The Government of Canada subsidizes food transportation to isolated northern communities through an annual payment of $15 million to Canada Post Corporation. Recent changes have focused the funding more on nutritious perishable food and extended the "food mail" service to additional regions. A Nutritious Northern Food Basket was developed to monitor the impact of the program on food prices. The results confirm that the program changes have made nutritious perishable food more affordable in isolated Native communities in the Northwest Territories.

Abstract
Changes to a federal subsidy on nutritious perishable and nonperishable foods were examined among 292 women of childbearing age in three Inuit communities. Problems were identified in relation to food security, concern over access to and safety of country food, insufficient income to adequately feed the family, serious concerns over alcohol and drug abuse and family violence, and high smoking rates. Women spent little time on the land and were only moderately active. There were low mean intakes for calcium, vitamin A, and folacin. Pregnant and lactating women were at greatest risk. Country food was the major source of protein and iron and store foods the major source of calories and most other nutrients. Nutritious perishables were the most important source of folacin and vitamin A. All communities had a high consumption of food of little nutritional value.
