High-Arctic research station receives bridge funding from federal government, ensuring facility remains open

For Immediate Release

We have some great news to share!

Thanks to your efforts, the federal government announced today that they will provide some bridge funding for the Polar Environment Atmospheric Research Laboratory (PEARL) in the high Arctic into Fall 2019.

Just last Monday, we held an exciting Science Policy and Science Politics panel discussion in partnership with the Canadian Association of University Teachers and iPolitics in Ottawa! Focusing almost entirely on Canada’s Fundamental Science Review (“the Naylor Report”), the event brought together people across disciplines for an engaging conversation over drinks.

Here's a summary of our first #cdnscichat with 2 researchers from PEARL! Read on to hear their answers to our questions from the Polar Vortex to government funding issues to what they eat at the lab!

E4D invited all four NDP Leadership candidates to share their vision for Canadian science. 

Scientific discovery, innovation, and fundamental research have led to numerous advancements for Canada, and underpins our strong economy and high quality of life. We should be immensely proud of Canadian science.
