Draft Agenda

Purpose and Objectives: The purpose of the Canadian Polar Data Workshop IV is to gather people involved in polar data management from across the country to share ideas and identify key priorities and commitments for coordinating the work of the polar data community and, ultimately, advancing our work in support of our vision.

The expected outcomes of the 2022 workshop are:

  1. A clear governance structure for Polar data management in Canada including the design for a governing body and the building of a national data plan, to be embedded within a larger Arctic science plan for Canada.
  2. The draft of a strategic plan towards furthering Indigenous data sovereignty in Canada.
  3. An environmental scan of relevant players for Arctic data management within Canada.
  4. Building Canada’s Arctic data future by welcoming students and early career scientists into the community.
