Circumpolar Affairs

Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) has an important role to play in the promotion of circumpolar cooperation among the eight Arctic countries through Canada’s Northern Strategy. Through active participation in Canada's multilateral (Arctic Council) and bilateral (Russia, Norway, U.S.) fora in the Arctic, and in collaboration with the territories and Aboriginal peoples, INAC works to strengthen governance and improve the quality of life in Canada's North.
