Innovation Canada is an on-line web magazine featuring new research in Canada, and projects funded by the Canadian Foundation for Innovation. Since its creation in 1997, the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) has committed up to $3.7 billion in funds to 5,000 projects at more than 125 universities, colleges, research hospitals, and non-profit research institutions across Canada. The current issue highlights research in the Canadian North, and CFI projects linked to the International Polar Year. Various essays profile educational programs, International Polar Year funding, paleoclimate research, information sharing, youth initiatives for raising awareness on environmental matters, and more. Guest author Susan Aglukark writes about her home community of Arviat, Nunavut, and concerns over pollution, water quality, and wildlife habitat at an estuary near the community.
