Book with confidence and safety at the Churchill Northern Studies Centre

During this exceptional time, we at the Churchill Northern Studies Centre are committed to providing you with the safest possible experience during your time with us. While we know it has been a trying year for those of us who seek northern and remote adventures, we are happy to see that there is continued interest in coming to visit Churchill and experience the beautiful skies, wildlife, and plant life that surrounds us while supporting the sustainability and research initiatives happening at the CNSC. We’ve detailed some of our safety and guest experience initiatives below – take a look, and then check out our current Learning Vacations offerings.

CNSC is fully committed to following all current public health guidelines

The Churchill Northern Studies Centre has been working closely with officials at the Public Health department to develop our programs to be fully compliant with any guidelines in place at the time of tour. Guest guidelines around masking, spacing, sanitation, and any other measures will  be aligned with current Manitoba Prevention Orders.

Current Public Health Restrictions

The Canadian border is currently open only for essential travel and non-essential travel from the USA by fully vaccinated individuals and unvaccinated children under the age of 12.

The CNSC is open to the public for our gift shop , research visitors, and overnight and day program participants. We will continue to monitor the situation and public health updates carefully and modify our working guidelines as necessary.

Enhanced sanitation and cleaning

Following the guidance for increased sanitation, the CNSC is increasing its housekeeping workforce during tours to allow for multiple cleanings of high traffic areas daily guests will be provided with easy access to hand sanitizer and cleaning wipes at all times during the trip.

A building that breathes with you

The CNSC is a LEED-silver certified facility – at 27,000 square feet, it has plenty of room for everyone to move around! Not only does the CNSC offer unparalleled spacing, but every public room is equipped with a CO2 sensor that will increase ventilation levels automatically whenever it is occupied. Breathe easy knowing that every room used by a group gets fresh air whenever it is in use!

Exploring the outdoors

While the CNSC is a spacious and well-ventilated space, you can’t beat the space and fresh air outside! All our Learning Vacations are nature-focused, and as such, we spend a lot of our time outside. Explore the tundra and marvel at the sights – while we will still continue to deliver the in-depth educational lectures we’re known for, we’ll spend as much time as possible outdoors.
