When you need to reach out and talk to someone, call the Helpline.

Kamatsiaqtut is here for all people who need someone to talk to about their troubles, concerns, and anything that bothers you. Often our worries or fears don’t seem so large when we talk about them with someone who is just willing to listen.

In Inuktitut, Kamatsiaqtut means thoughtful people who care. Our trained volunteers are on the phone 24 hours every day of the week. Volunteers come from many walks of life and are always available with an open mind and listening ear for those who need someone to talk to about issues that matter to you. All of our volunteers speak English and many speak Inuktitut and French.

Since the Kamatsiaqtut Help Line began taking calls on Jan. 15, 1990, we are committed to helping people help themselves. Kamatsiaqtut volunteers don’t provide the answers to problems. They help you find your own answers by offering a safe, supportive, non-judging place to talk things out. All calls are kept strictly confidential.

Kamatsiaqtut is for everyone, not just people in crisis. If you find yourself needing someone to talk to, whether you’re lonely, hurting, in distress or need someone to share good news with, please give us a call.

Don’t think of us as a Crisis Line, think of us as a Help Line.

Call us. 24 hours a day. Every day.


The help line is toll-free, anonymous, confidential and staffed by trained volunteers.
