What is the Canadian Polar Commission?
It's Canada’s primary polar knowledge agency. And it also:
• is a point of contact with the Canadian and international polar scientific communities;
• works with Canadian and international institutions to determine scientific and other priorities;
• encourages and facilitates cooperation and collaboration in polar knowledge;
• provides advice to the Minister of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development.
