The wealth of images of the Arctic that Canadian Geographic has accumulated since 1930 and the extensive work of The Royal Canadian Geographical Society and The Canadian Museum of Nature in this region are clear reflections of how the North has always been at the very heart of Canadian identity.

The Accessible Arctic brings the beauty of the North close to us as it speaks of its past, present and future. These quintessential images of nature and life in the arctic also remind us of the vast treasure that we hold in trust for future generations.

Canada’s Arctic makes up over 40% of our landmass and is home to more than 100,000 Canadians. Northerners, including indigenous peoples, who comprise 80 percent of the population in some regions, have brought a number of issues to the world’s attention:

The Government of Canada’s Arctic foreign policy is a response to the challenges and opportunities presented by a changing Arctic. Canada has focused global efforts on the impact of climate change in the region. It has been a major player in the negotiation of important international environmental instruments that address critical issues such as pollution and the need to protect and preserve our unique Arctic environment.

Proudly presented by the Consulate General of Canada, Sydney in association with Head On Photo Festival
