What We Do

We design and deliver programs to support public policy development, implementation and understanding by conducting and disseminating research, supporting leadership development, and providing a forum for public discourse. We act as a catalyst to engage key constituents who share our vision for a dynamic Canadian north.

Why We Do It

We believe that Canada's two most valued attributes are also our most vulnerable and misunderstood. We are therefore committed to ensuring public policy in Canada supports sound water management and an equitable, evolving, healthy North.
