Northwest Territories Incidence Study

The Northwest Territories Incidence Study of Reported Child Abuse and Neglect (NWTIS) is designed to collect information about the children and families who are investigated by child welfare services on a periodic basis, using a standardized set of definitions, from every jurisdiction in the Northwest Territories. There has been one cycle of the study, conducted in 2003.

The NWTIS-2003 was conducted through a partnership among the federal (Public Health Agency of Canada) and territorial governments, child welfare service providers including territorial level First Nations child welfare organizations, university-based researchers of multiple disciplines, and child advocates.

NOTE: These are findings that reflect the Northwest Territories child welfare system. Please note also that publications related to the NWTIS are often only available in English.
