Arctic

Canada’s Arctic is home to Inuit, Cree, Dene and Innu peoples. It’s also a growing market for tourism. It has a potentially valuable shipping route. It’s a burgeoning source of natural resources like iron, gold, diamonds and copper. It also contains some of the largest intact natural areas in the world.
