How does the melting Arctic affect us all?
It’s no secret the Arctic is dramatically changing, but what are the consequences?
As melting ice opens up Arctic waterways, there are complex implications for Canada and the world’s northernmost countries, such as:
Increased political tension.
Expanding Arctic waterways provide economic opportunity for competing northern countries.
Heightened concerns for the security of our northern borders.
Canada must now balance northern security with the challenges of stationing its Armed Forces in the Arctic.
Long-lasting effects on the environment.
More water, less land mass and disrupted food sources have a significant impact on northern wildlife.
