Labrador Suicide Rate


The suicide rate in Labrador is twenty times higher among the Inuit then those who are non-Indigenous.

Results from the same study showed that the rate is fourteen times higher for Innu people compared to non-Indigenous people.

The study is from Statistics Canada with reports over 17 years ending in 2009.

They show a suicide rate of 165 Inuit deaths per year for every 100,000 people and 114 for the Innu, compared to eight in Newfoundland.
