Working together in a changing Canadian Arctic.

In the Arctic regions, where rapid transformation is shaped by climate, environmental and socio-economic change, impacts are felt first and most severely in Arctic communities and territories.

ArcticNet contributes to the development and distribution of the knowledge to inform policy development and adaptation strategies to help Canadians meet the challenges and opportunities created by socio-economic and climate change in the Arctic.
