Canadian researchers continue to advance knowledge on a range of issues affecting the Arctic and the North, but the research landscape remains both complex and fragmented. A clear vision is required to ensure that Canada supports research that aids the self-determination and well-being of Arctic and Northern communities and responds to the needs and priorities of the people who live there. At the request of a consortium of Arctic and Northern research organizations from across Canada, led by ArcticNet, the Council of Canadian Academies (CCA) has formed an Expert Panel to identify the key foundational elements required to create an inclusive, collaborative, effective, and world-class Arctic and Northern science system. The Panel will be co-chaired by Karla Jessen Williamson, PhD, Assistant Professor, Educational Foundations, University of Saskatchewan, and Ashlee Cunsolo, PhD, Founding Dean, School of Arctic and Subarctic Studies, Labrador Campus of Memorial University.
