Community Engagement

Canada's cold regions are increasingly recognized for their valuable water, mineral, and energy resources. Their glaciers and ice caps contain a record of climate and environmental change reaching back at least 15,000 years. The Canadian Ice Core Archive enables and supports internationally unique and integrated climate, environmental, biological, and contaminants research that focuses on some of the most important and policy-relevant environmental questions of our time.

In addition to published scientific findings, results are shared with the public via media and community engagement opportunities.
