Panel Discussion with Wilfrid Laurier University’s Northern Researchers

September 25, 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm


Please come and join us for a panel discussion with several of Laurier’s northern researchers to discuss the past, present and future of Laurier research in the NWT.


Laurier established a research partnership with the Government of the Northwest Territories in 2010 to expand the NWT’s capacity to conduct environmental research and monitoring, and to enhance its ability to manage its natural resources for future generations.

Laurier’s research priorities in the North include research on climate change, water, permafrost, forest ecology, northern food security and infrastructure development. As an institution, Laurier considers research on the environment, particularly climate change, to be among its highest strategic priorities.

The Panel discussion will take place in the auditorium at the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre from 3:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. It is a free event and open to the public. Coffee and light refreshments will be available at the Museum Café from 2:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. If you have any questions or concerns please contact research@wlu.ca.
