Arctic Circle gathering boosts cooperation across the circumpolar world

Canada’s three territorial premiers reinforced their solidarity at the Arctic Circle Greenland Forum which drew leaders from across the circumpolar world and beyond to Nuuk, Aug. 27 to Aug. 29.

“The North is often seen with such a small population base versus the southern Canadian cities or jurisdictions,” said Nunavut Premier P.J. Akeeagok.

“But we are mighty in terms of our landmass, of our people, of our culture, of our languages and as such it’s very important to have a unified voice.”

Akeeagok, along with Sandy Silver, premier of Yukon, and Caroline Cochrane, premier of the Northwest Territories, issued a joint statement Monday, saying, “It was an honour to be invited to the Arctic Circle Forum and attend in-person to continue a global dialogue about the North.”
