Feds committed to helping North realize true potential
The North is an integral part of our heritage and holds tremendous promise for our country’s future. During Canada’s chairmanship, we will work closely with other Arctic states and indigenous peoples to promote our northern interests and co-operate with other Arctic Council partners on a shared circumpolar vision for the region.
