Successful projects will advance POLAR’s mandate, which includes to:

▪ strengthen Canadian leadership in polar science and technology; and
▪ promote the development and distribution of knowledge of the other circumpolar regions, including
the Antarctic;
This call is supported through POLAR’s Grants and Contributions to Support the Advancement of Northern Science and Technology. Projects funded through POLAR must adhere to the funding program’s terms and conditions.
2024-2027 call for funding applications – Two-stream funding call
POLAR operates a pan-northern science and technology program and recognizes the critical importance of broad-based input from Northerners, especially Indigenous peoples, in developing and implementing its five-year Science and Technology plans.
In this two-stream funding call, POLAR seeks to fund research or training and capacity building projects that are Inuit Nunangat led or partnered and located in Inuit Nunangat.
All projects must align with one or more of POLAR’s Science and Technology (S&T) three goals.
POLAR’s S&T three goals are:
▪ Goal 1: Improving knowledge of dynamic northern terrestrial, freshwater and marine ecosystems in
the context of rapid change.
▪ Goal 2: Increasing understanding of the connections between northern community wellness and
environmental health.
▪ Goal 3: Advancing sustainable energy, technology, and infrastructure solutions for the unique
environmental, social, and cultural conditions in the North.
