As the largest annual Arctic research gathering held in Canada, the ASM welcomes over 500 participants annually and is the ideal venue to present results from all fields of Arctic research and stimulate national and international networking and partnership activities. Scientists, policy and decision makers, representatives of government and non-government organizations, the private-sector, northern stakeholders and media are invited to join us for the ASM2015 to address the global challenges and opportunities brought by climate change and modernization in the Arctic.

We are pleased that the Northern Contaminants Program (NCP) will be joining us at The Westin Bayshore for the 2015 NCP Results Workshop from 7 to 8 December. Please contact the NCP Secretariat for further information:
