The new Canada Centre for Global Security Studies at the Munk School of Global Affairs and Walter & Duncan Gordon Foundation have partnered for four-year multidimensional international program to improve public policy in the Circumpolar Arctic. The program will begin with an unprecedented survey of International, Northern and Southern Canadian public opinion on issues related to the Arctic by Ekos Research Associates Inc.

For the Northern component of the survey, a representative sample in each territory will be surveyed, so that it will be possible to compare attitudes of those in each of the three territories—Nunavut, the Northwest Territories and Yukon—against each other, as well as to public opinion in the south of the country. Canadian attitudes will then be compared to those of our Arctic neighbours: the United States, Russia, Denmark (Greenland), Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Finland.

We would like to invite you to the launch of this new survey on Tuesday, January 25, 2011 at the Vivian and David Campbell Conference Facility at the Munk School of Global Affairs at the University of Toronto. The day will be filled with engaging speakers discussing the future of this important region. It will also be a chance for a discussion of the policy challenges facing the Arctic in terms of security (broadly defined), the Arctic Council, and Emergency Management.
