Nunavik Communities and Ice
This project uses both Inuit and scientific knowledge to document the impacts of climate change on winter trail networks that provide access to traditional harvesting grounds and resources in Nunavik. Initial work on related projects has involved interviews conducted by community researchers which were focused on identifying the trail networks currently used at various periods of the year and by which means of transportation. Through collaboration with the ISIUOP study, this information will be verified and made digitally available to communities. Areas characterized as increasing in risk (based on descriptions by participants) are also being identified and this information will make it possible to create ongoing trail and risk assessment maps for the participating communities. Current work under the community-based ice monitoring program and research project is focused on the further mapping and verification of changes in sea ice trail conditions and use and the development of new indicators bringing together Inuit knowledge of changing ice conditions and cues or indicators of ice safety with quantitative ice modelling data. This information will support the further development and enhancement of community-based ice monitoring programs in the region for hunting and traveling safety. This project is a collaborative initiative between the communities of Nunavik, the Kativik Regional Government and researchers at Trent University, Ouranos Climate Change Consortium in Montreal and Laval University. This project is an ongoing initiative, however some important adaptations are being made based on the partnerships developed thus far with other regions through the ISIUOP study and via the funds provided from the International Polar Year Program.
