The ArcticNet scientific meeting took place in Vancouver, British Columbia from December 7-11.
There, hundreds of Canadian scientists and researchers gathered to give presentations on everything from Inuit health to climate change in the North.
The meeting also coincided with the last week of the United Nations climate change summit in Paris, something that put the spotlight on the situation in the North and the kinds of adaptation and mitigation strategies that need to be put in place in Canada’s Arctic communities.
