Canada's Northern Strategy
Canada’s Northern Strategy was launched in 2009. It is the Government of Canada’s vision for a new North and its commitment to ensure that vision comes to life for the benefit of all Canadians.
To meet the challenges and opportunities of a changing North, the Government is taking concrete action in four priority areas:
- Exercising our Arctic sovereignty
- Protecting our environmental heritage
- Promoting social and economic development
- Improving and devolving Northern governance
World-leading Arctic science and technology underpin the Northern Strategy and help ensure sound decision-making. The Government is committed to helping the North realize its true potential as a healthy, prosperous and secure region within a strong and sovereign Canada.
