ArcticNet’s multidisciplinary research effort is focused on addressing the challenges and opportunities facing the coastal Canadian Arctic, with the objective of filling identified knowledge gaps to help the formulation and implementation of policies and adaptation strategies.
Diverse research teams from 34 universities across Canada, collaborate with stakeholders from Inuit organizations, northern communities, research institutes, industry as well as government and international agencies, creating a unique, multi-disciplinary and cross-sectorial environment for managing the Canadian Arctic of tomorrow.
ArcticNet is pleased to announce the debut of 30 new projects in 2019 as part of its Phase V research program. The 30 research projects focus on five main themes: marine systems; terrestrial systems; Inuit health, education and adaptation; northern policy and development and knowledge transfer and operate across northern Manitoba, northern Yukon and the four Inuit regions of Canada: the Inuvialuit Settlement Region, Nunavut, Nunavik and Nunatsiavut. These projects also contribute to four Integrated Regional Impact Studies (IRISes), each corresponding to one of the main political-physiographic-oceanographic regions of the coastal Canadian Arctic.
