The Polar Knowledge Canada (POLAR) is accepting proposals for 1, 2 and 3 year projects with a start date of June 01, 2024, for northern-based research and training and capacity-building projects.
Up to a total of $600k per year in contribution funding will be awarded to Northern and Arctic projects
across two funding programs:
1. Science and Technology Program
2. Training and Capacity Building
Successful projects will advance POLAR’s mandate, which includes to:
▪ advance Canada’s knowledge of the Arctic;
▪ strengthen Canadian leadership in polar science and technology; and
▪ promote the development and distribution of knowledge of the other circumpolar regions, including
the Antarctic.
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.  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.
