Research

ArcticNet’s multidisciplinary research efforts focus on addressing the challenges and opportunities of the rapidly changing Canadian Arctic. ArcticNet funds projects across northern Manitoba, northern Yukon and the four Inuit regions of Canada: the Inuvialuit Settlement Region, Nunavut, Nunavik and Nunatsiavut.

Call for Proposals

Marine Systems

With one ocean, a 35000-island archipelago, Baffin Bay, and Hudson Bay, the sea plays a pivotal role in the subsistence economy and culture of the Canadian Arctic. Projects corresponding to this aim to better understand the reponse of marine systems and ecosystems to the pressures of climate change and modernization.

Terrestrial Systems

The tundra, rivers and lakes of the continental Arctic underpin the lifestyle of Inuit and Northerners, providing food and drinking water. Projects devoted to this focus on understanding how changing terrestrial ecosystems impact industry, socio-economic development and climate change.

Knowledge Transfer

ArticNet’s trademark is the mobilization of science results and northern expertise to inform policy. These projects focus on the application of knowledge to emerging northern issues not yet covered by ArcticNet.

North-by-North

Research by the North, for the North, in the North

In Arctic Canada, research must be led by northerners, based on northern knowledge and needs. ArcticNet’s North-by-North Program addresses significant gaps in northern and Inuit participation in the research and innovation ecosystem through two programs:

Data Management

The ArcticNet Data Management policy outlines network-wide objectives, principles, and guidelines for the management, retention, use, and dissemination of data generated and collected by ArcticNet-funded projects.

ArcticKT Portal

A hub for Arctic research knowledge transfer

The ArcticKT Portal is an accessible web-based tool that puts scientific and northern expertise in the hands of decision-makers in the Canadian Arctic. All Integrated Regional Impact Studies (IRIS) are available on the ArcticKT Portal.
