The Government of Canada published its Arctic policy one day before the start of the federal election. The policy was co-developed by the Government of Canada and numerous Northern organizations over the last 3 years. Given the electoral results, this roundtable wants to bring experts together to decipher how the Arctic region was talked about during the campaign and the likely direction that it will take in the next. Will the Arctic become a priority for the Government of Canada? Which issues will be prioritized? How can the attention devoted to these issues during the electoral campaign inform us on future orientations?
