Montreal to Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada

This week the Eye on the Arctic team at Radio Canada International is off to Canada’s western Arctic. In previous years, Eye on the Arctic has travelled to Nunavut and Nunavik and focused on everything from art and language to a series of reports for our 2011 Arctic Health Seires.

This year, we’re spotlighting business and economy in the Canadian Arctic and the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead in communities in these remote regions.

We hope you stay tuned.
