This annotated bibliography of Inuit housing is meant to be a resource for anyone interested in the history and development of housing programs and policies in Arctic Canada.

The bibliography will continue to grow as we add more materials. It was produced as part of the Nunavut Urban Futures project directed by Mason White and Lola Shepard and funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Council of Canada (Insight grant # 435-2014-1450).
