Canada and Sweden sign deal on Arctic science

Canada and Sweden have signed an agreement to cooperate more on Arctic science.

The deal will focus in particular on the Arctic Ocean, and the two countries’ collaborative marine surveys. This may include gathering data to support Canada’s claim to its extended continental shelf in the Arctic.

“Understanding the Arctic matters more now than ever because of global challenges such as climate change. Collaboration with Sweden will help Canada’s scientists collect data to better understand northern ecosystems, which in turn will help us develop more effective evidence-based policies to protect our polar regions,” said science minister Kirsty Duncan.
