Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM)

At UQAM, 14 departments work in the North and Arctic. The training activities dedicated specifically to the North are divided into many disciplines: history, politics, tourism, literature, the arts, religious sciences, linguistics and sociology. UQAM researchers collaborate with Indigenous communities on projects to analyze social, cultural, economic and environmental issues related to the North and the wintery world. The UQAM Northern and Arctic Research Portal, available online, chronicles the research and training activities dealing with the North and Arctic that are carried out or organized at UQAM. This portal also aims to strengthen links between researchers from different disciplines and promote the development of multisectoral training activities.
