The Second Canadian Polar Data Workshop

Ottawa, May 30-31, 2017

Bringing the Canadian Polar Data Community Together

We invite you to participate in the Second Canadian Polar Data Workshop which is a follow-up to the first Canada-wide consultation that was conducted in May 2015. We plan to hold this second workshop on May 30-31, 2017, at 111 Sussex Drive, Ottawa, Ontario.
The objectives of the workshop are to coordinate polar data management activities in Canada as well as work on specific action items that were raised during the 2015 workshop. The workshop will be structured to reach specific outcomes through working sessions and consensus building on themes such as policy, funding, collaboration, and governance structure.
The workshop will be hosted through partnership between the Canadian Cryospheric Information Network/Polar Data Catalogue (CCIN/PDC), Polar Knowledge Canada, and numerous other organizations.
We want this discussion to be as inclusive as possible and invite all rights holders and stakeholders interested in data management issues for the Arctic and Antarctic regions to participate. Please note that we are currently working to secure travel funding for northern participants.
If you have any questions about the workshop, please send an email to and we will ensure that your question is answered.
