dc.description.abstract Broader social determinants such as poverty have a greater influence on Inuit food security. When poor socioeconomic conditions, such as those associated with public housing, are coupled with poor environmental conditions, such as those experienced during winter 2010/2011, the vulnerability of the traditional food system is exacerbated. Resilience was particularly impeded for financially insecure households reliant on income support. Results show increased environmental stresses to the traditional food system compared to previous years, which negatively impacted hunters’ harvests and residents’ food supplies, but overall, the traditional food system was not as vulnerable to climatic extremes as anticipated. Socioeconomic conditions are more problematic. en
