Past events

Title Description Category Date of event
Canada and the Antarctic The Arctic and Antarctic are the Earth's polar opposites, but they're interconnected—and both have a major influence on our planet's climate. Canada is an Arctic state and a world leader in cold-climate research. This webinar will explain the links between Arctic and Antarctic research and why the Antarctic is important for Canada. Knowledge Sharing Webinar Series 2022-03-24
Whale population and marine ecosystem biodiversity The arctic undersea world is full of life, from tiny zooplankton though to the gigantic whales that eat them. What does climate change and human activities mean for this ecosystem, so much of which depends on sea ice? Knowledge Sharing Webinar Series 2022-03-23
Climate change research and monitoring The land, sea, and the wildlife they support are the foundation of life and culture in northern Indigenous communities. What do the environmental effects of climate change mean for those communities, and what action is needed in response? Knowledge Sharing Webinar Series 2022-03-16
Arctic char and other fish population dynamics Fish—especially Arctic Char—is a food staple in Arctic communities. How is climate change affecting arctic fish now, and how might they respond in the future? Knowledge Sharing Webinar Series 2022-03-15
Environmental change – snow, ice, and precipitation Climate change is altering familiar patterns of ice, wind, and weather in the Arctic. How is this affecting wildlife and communities, and what can we expect in the future? Knowledge Sharing Webinar Series 2022-03-11
Caribou abundance and migration Across the North, Indigenous people have always depended on caribou for food and clothing. What does climate change, and other changes caused by human activity, mean for the future of these animals, and what can research into four herds tell us about the rest?
