A key finding of the report was the broad consensus amongst Canadians for the country to focus on Arctic security. However\, security in the 21st Century is more complex and multi-faceted then the traditional concept. Climate change\, disaster and emergency management\, increased shipping\, food security\, indigenous rights and many other issues are now front and centre. To that end\, CIC and COVE are hosting a discussion to encourage a re-imaging of how Canada sees its North and how a community-centred approach to its development and security is key to the future of the country. \n \n\n\n\n\n  \n  \nLocation: \n\n\n\n\nVirtual (via Zoom) and in-person (COVE\, 27 Parker St. (South Building)\, Dartmouth) \nIn Person Tickets: \nPlease join us from 5:20pm to 6pm for an in-person reception prior to the event. \nPanelists: \nMadeleine Redfern\, LLB\, was born in Iqaluit\, Nunavut.
