International Polar Year, or IPY (2007-2009) is by far the most exciting international scientific and educational opportunity of this century. For the next two years, all eyes will be focused on the physical, social and human dimensions of our planet's polar regions. Watch this blog for news related to Canadian outreach and education efforts related to IPY. Of particular interest to educators!

Northern Contaminants Program Results Workshop
The aim of the NCP Results Workshop is to evaluate the state of knowledge and the status of work conducted under the NCP for the year 2009/2010. Presentations, posters and panel discussions will revolve around contaminant-related themes and will focus this year on issues related to mercury and its significance to Northerners. The workshop will also provide an excellent opportunity to develop NCP proposal ideas prior to the NCP Call for Proposals in November 2010. It will encourage program participants to network, discuss their results, and co-ordinate future work.
