The Arctic may seem like a cold, barren place to those who have only seen pictures of its vast expanse covered in snow and ice. The Churchill Northern Studies Center aims to prove that the Arctic is vibrant and full of life by providing a year round destination for scientists, researchers and tourists alike.
The motto of the Center is "To Understand and Sustain the North" and great advances have been made towards this goal; CNSC’s dedicated team has published a large variety of academic research papers as a result of their hard work. There are several ongoing projects taking place and funding opportunities are in place for future researchers. Founded in 1976, The CNSC has provided accommodation, meals, equipment rentals and logistical support to scientists and researchers since its inception.
The Churchill Northern Studies Center is located along the coast of the Hudson Bay, strategically positioned at the meeting place of three major biomes: marine, northern boreal forest and tundra. To the east of the Center visitors will find Wapusk National Park, which includes a protected denning area for the polar bear. The Center’s location creates the perfect setting for students of all ages to learn about the History of Churchill, its wildlife and flora. The Center also offers learning vacations and university courses.
