Facilitate, Promote, Enhance
The Churchill Northern Studies Research Centre provides year-round support to scientists involved in research in the Western Hudson Bay region. Research objectives of the CNSC are to facilitate, promote, enhance and undertake investigations of Northern issues. Major research themes that take place from the CNSC include auroral research, climate change, climatology, greenhouse gas emissions, inland water quality, marine ecosystems, community sustainability, tourism resilience, northern ecology, peatland and treeline dynamics, lake ice formation and wildlife management. The CNSC serves as one of the most accessible northern field research stations in Canada.
WHAT DOES IT COST?
Fees for service
In our mission to understand and sustain the North, we strive to make doing so accessible to researchers. At a very competitive cost, the CNSC offers accommodations, meals, and logistic support for researchers. In addition, we have vehicles for rent as well as storage rooms for long-term research projects.
Support the work of Researchers
Since the mid 1990s, the Churchill Northern Studies Centre has supported the work of researchers through our Northern Research Fund (NRF). The goal of the NRF program is to enhance field research conducted by scientists using the facilities and services of the Centre. All researchers and all disciplines are eligible to apply with priority given to new researchers and students.
As an active field station, the CNSC hosts researchers any time of the year. We support both new and established researchers in collecting and reporting data.
