ArcticNet research in pictures

ARCTICNET is a Network of Centres of Excellence of Canada that brings together scientists and managers in the natural, human health and social sciences with their partners from Inuit organizations, northern communities, federal and provincial agencies and the private sector. The objective of ArcticNet is to study the impacts of climate change and modernization in the coastal Canadian Arctic. Over 150 ArcticNet researchers and 1000 graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, research associates, technicians and other specialists from 34 Canadian universities, and 20 federal and provincial agencies and departments collaborate with more than 150 partner organizations in 14 countries.

ArcticNet funding renewed for 5 years

On April 16, 2019, the NCE announced that ArcticNet was renewed at a level of $32,475,000 over five years. This extension will provide an opportunity for the Network to develop beyond the Networks of Centres of Excellence program and morph into a perennial pan-Canadian research powerhouse that will match the research effort of any other nation in the Arctic.

Ms Scientist documentary promo for Women's Day 2019

During the recent CCGS Amundsen expedition Canadian scientists and engineers disassembled monitoring equipment from a fragment of an ice ‘island’ that calved off Greenland’s Petermann Glacier and grounded near Qikiqtarjuaq.

We don’t call them ‘women’ scientists or engineers because…it’s 2019!

Check out an excerpt from the CBC documentary Ms. Scientist directed by Brandy Yanchyk examining challenges faced by women researchers in Canada.
