The Centre for the North is for senior corporate, Indigenous, public sector, NGO, and academic leaders with a vested interest in the policies, challenges, and opportunities that pertain to Northern and remote Canada. Members want to build trusted relationships that will help create a prosperous and healthy future for Canada’s remote regions and communities.
