Arctic Science Month

All through December, the Government of Canada is highlighting its contributions to Arctic science research by celebrating Arctic Science Month!

This celebration shines a light on the vital research of Canada’s scientists and researchers working across the country.

Here are some of the exciting activities planned:

  • Starting December 1, Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) will run a contest on Twitter to win a flag of Canada that flew at the North Pole on a Canadian Coast Guard icebreaker during a recent Arctic science expedition. Try your hand at winning the flag by taking a look at NRCan’s Science at Work video series, then tell us which episode is your favorite by tweeting about it using the hashtag #WinTheFlag!

  • In mid December, NRCan will debut its first episode of a new podcast called Ask NRCan. The first episode will be an interview with Dr. Jennifer Galloway, a Research Scientist at NRCan, and will focus on the great work she is doing and the important role of traditional knowledge in Arctic science. Follow @NRCan for more details.
  • Follow Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada’s Flickr account as it provides updates on the construction of the Canadian High Arctic Research Station (CHARS) in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut.
