A Pan-Northern Approach to Science

In April 2016, territorial premiers released A Pan-Northern Approach to Science. The strategy recognizes that it is not sufficient to study the North from afar. Broadening our own understanding of the North, and drawing upon traditional knowledge as well as modern science, will improve our collective ability to operate in an environment that is fragile to begin with, and undergoing serious and rapid change.  Advances in knowledge and understanding are necessary to achieving the collaborative vision for the North shared by the territories and outlined in A Northern Vision

The Premiers’ shared vision for northern science in the three territories is to:

  • Support a strong northern science community that is solutions-driven, needs-oriented and partnership-based
  • Broaden our own understanding of the north
  • Encourage both traditional knowledge as well as modern science
  • Develop northern research capacity
  • Realize a prosperous, healthy and sustainable North that will benefit northerners and all Canadians, now and in the future
