Canada wraps up two year chairmanship of Arctic Council

“No one knows better more than the people who live here how to survive and to thrive in the Arctic environment,” said Canada’s Minister of Environment Leona Leona Aglukkaq and Minister for the Arctic Council as she chaired her last Council meeting as Canada’s two-year chairmanship of the Council came to an end.

The incoming Arctic Council Chair is U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.

The ninth ministerial meeting of the Council is being held in Canada’s northern city of Iqaluit from April 24 to 25.
