Northern Contaminants Program - 25 Years

The Northern Contaminants Program (NCP) engages Northerners and scientists in researching and monitoring of long-range contaminants in the Canadian Arctic, that is, contaminants that are transported to the Arctic through atmospheric and oceanic processes from other parts of the world and which remain in the Arctic environment and build up in the food chain.

The data generated by the NCP is used to assess ecosystem and human health, and the findings of these assessments are used to address the safety and security of traditional country foods that are important to the health and traditional lifestyles of Northerners and northern communities. The findings also inform policy, resulting in action to eliminate contaminants from long-range sources.

The NCP recently marked its 25thanniversary milestone by reaffirming its commitment to scientific excellence and Northern engagement on the issue of long-range contaminants in the Arctic, including a renewed focus on community based monitoring and research, and Indigenous knowledge.
