Canada’s Arctic: An Unsettling Past And An Uncertain Future

The Vancouver Aquarium invites you to join us for a unique opportunity to hear directly from the experts at a free public event.

The Arctic that our grandchildren describe will be dramatically different from that of today. The causes and consequences of these changes reach across our entire planet.

Two of Canada’s leading authorities on the changing Arctic environment will look ahead to 2060 and discuss what we can expect in the face of continued Arctic change.

This is a rare opportunity to hear Doctors Louis Fortier and David Barber discuss their views on a subject of global importance, and to ask your questions directly of the experts.


The Evening’s Speakers

Dr. Louis Fortier
Scientific Director, Network of Centers of Excellence ArcticNet, Université Laval

Dr. David Barber
Professor of Environment and Geography and Canada Research Chair in Arctic System Science
Clayton H. Riddell Faculty of Environment Earth and Resources, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, MB

The conversation will continue over light Hors d'oeuvres and refreshments following the forum.
