Administrative history

The Canadian Arctic Resources Committee (CARC) is a citizen’s organization dedicated to the long-term environmental and social well being of northern Canada and its peoples. It was established in 1971 as a direct response to the Mackenzie Pipeline proposal and the Berger Inquiry. Since that time they have been involved with many issues, including an international treaty on toxic chemicals, and environmental assessments for Canadian diamond mines. CARC’s policy and advocacy work is grounded in scientific and socioeconomic research and experience.

CARC does not receive any government funding for core operations, relying on donations and grants to carry out their work. CARC is directed by a volunteer board, and an advisory committee composed of northern residents, scientists, experts, business people, and others. In 2015 the Yellowknife office closed and CARC now operates out of its Ottawa, Ontario office.
