Our Fields of Focus

ARF’s unique, collaborative projects fuse art, science and culture to create new Arctic infrastructure and promote sustainable economic development. ARF’s work is guided by the Canada-U.S. Shared Arctic Leadership Model that espouses “conserving Arctic biodiversity through science-based decision-making … incorporating Indigenous science and traditional knowledge into sustainable decision-making … [and] building a sustainable Arctic economy.”

Here’s a sample of our recent projects:

  1. Gjoa Haven Innovation Centre

  2. Kitikmeot Marine Science expeditions

  3. Tuktoyaktuk Marine Science Expedition

  4. Churchill Marine Observatory Expedition

  5. Cambridge Arts Studio

 

Science

ARF supports scientific research in the Arctic by partnering with universities and other research institutions that need access to our vessels, oceanographic equipment, research labs and on-the-ground expertise. ARF’s ships TK. Its mobile labs, which can be pulled across the snow in the winter or floated on waterways in the summer, allow critical research to be done on location, regardless of how remote. 

The foundation also seeks to maximize the benefits of Arctic research for local communities. We accomplish this by finding novel ways to transfer scientific knowledge and operational know-how to locals, while also tapping into their expertise when it comes to the logistics of Arctic travel, accessing ice conditions and conservation efforts.

“The key to building trust between those who live in the North and people who live in the South, bridges between Western Science and the people who base their knowledge on indigenous science, traditional knowledge.”
