International Polar Year (IPY) 2007-2008 marks the largest-ever international program of scientific research focused on the Arctic and Antarctic regions. Thousands of scientists and researchers from more than 60 nations around the globe are expected to participate in IPY during the 24-month period beginning March 2007.

In addition to presenting Canada with a valuable opportunity to work together with researchers from around the world, IPY will also create a more complete scientific understanding of the North that can be applied to address issues related to our environment and the well-being of our communities.
