Engagement to Inform Polar Knowledge Canada’s 2020 to 2025 Research Plan and Strategic Plan

Polar Knowledge Canada (POLAR) is in the process of developing its next 5-year Research Plan and broader agency-wide Strategic Plan to guide the agency’s future funding, programs and activities from 2020 to 2025, in order to:

  • Advance knowledge of the Canadian North in order to improve economic opportunities, environmental stewardship and the quality of life of its residents and all other Canadians;
  • Promote the development and dissemination of knowledge of the other circumpolar regions, including the Antarctic;
  • Strengthen Canada’s leadership on northern issues; and,
  • Provide a research hub at the world-class Canadian High Arctic Research Station campus in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut.

We want input from you!
POLAR’s Call for Input is open to anyone who wishes to provide input.

POLAR will also consider results to-date from its current program activities and initiatives, and opportunities to build on plans and activities of other groups and organizations.

It is anticipated that POLAR’s 2020-2025 Research Plan and Strategic Plan will be released in 2019.
