Abstract

In response to the ACIA finding, the 4th Arctic Council Ministerial Meeting (Reykjavik Declaration): “Request(ed) PAME to conduct a comprehensive Arctic marine shipping assessment as outlined in the AMSP under the guidance of Canada, Finland, and the United States as lead countries and in collaboration with the EPPR working group and other working groups of the Arctic Council and Permanent Participants as relevant.” Canada, as a participant in the AMSA, agreed to contribute to a domestic study and report on the social, economic, and environmental effects and consequences to northern and Aboriginal communities from current and future marine shipping activities in the Canadian Arctic. This domestic study will form part of the Canadian contribution in support of the Arctic Council’s Arctic Marine Shipping Assessment (AMSA).
