Associated Events

Researchers’ Corner
February 16-17

Frobisher Room, Fairmont Château Laurier

Similar to the concept of a Speaker’s Corner, the IPY Researchers’ Corner will provide an opportunity to the IPY community to speak on camera about the experiences and discoveries gained through IPY. These video clips will be used for the Government of Canada IPY website and in a variety of other communication and outreach activities. Researchers and members of the IPY community will be encouraged to visit the booth at various times throughout the workshop.

Arctic Vision - IPY Photo Exhibit
February 16-18

Ballroom Foyer, Fairmont Château Laurier

Arctic Vision celebrates the scientific achievement of International Polar Year (IPY) in Canada through 27 images from IPY research projects funded by the Government of Canada Program for IPY. These images capture the breadth and depth of scientific endeavours in the Canadian Arctic during the IPY Observing Years of 2007 to 2009.

Canadian Arctic Research Licensing Initiative (CARLI) Sessions

Over the next two years the Government of Canada Program for International Polar Year is facilitating an IPY initiative called the Canadian Arctic Research Licensing Initiative (CARLI). This project is intended to provide a unique opportunity for territorial and federal northern regulators, Aboriginal governments and organizations and the research community to work together to exchange information, share best practices and review the application and processing of research licences in Canada’s North. These sessions will be used to meet with researcher to discuss initiatives that would improve researchers’ understanding and ability to navigate the licensing process in Canada’s North. Participation in these sessions is being organized by the IPY Federal Program Office.

February 16 – 13:30-15:00 (Concurrent Session 1)
Session 1: Health, social science and ethics research licensing
MacDonald Room, Fairmont Château Laurier

February 18 – 13:00-14:30
Session 2: Bio-physical research licensing in the North
MacDonald Room, Fairmont Château Laurier

Reception and Poster Session
February 16

Ballroom and Ballroom Foyer, Fairmont Château Laurier

Health Canada: Northern Health Research and Community Well- Being
February 17 – 13:30-15:00 (Concurrent Session 4)

Ballroom, Fairmont Château Laurier

This round table will feature presentations and discussions on issues surrounding Northern health research and community well-being. It is part of an ongoing initiative to improve sciencepolicy integration across the federal health portfolio and it strives to inform and bring together the scientific and policy communities on specific health science issues. This round table offers a unique opportunity to bring together the IPY researcher community and those interested in the policy implications of their research.






Location of the Château Laurier

Venue: Fairmont Château Laurier

The Fairmont Château Laurier is historic hotel located in the heart of downtown Ottawa. Surrounded by several notable Ottawa features such as the Rideau Canal, Ottawa River, Parliament Hill and the Byward Market, the Château Laurier is perfectly situated for access to the history, culture and vibrancy that defines the city of Ottawa.
