2012 Arctic Fellows
In 2010, the Gordon Foundation launched the Jane Glassco Arctic Fellowship Program. This program is aimed at young Northerners, especially Aboriginal Northerners, aged 25-35, who want to build a strong North guided by Northerners. It is for those who, at this stage in their lives, are looking for additional support, networks and guidance from mentors and peers across the North as they deepen their understanding of important issues facing their region and develop policy ideas to help address them.
From Old Crow, Yukon in the west, to Makkovik, Nunatsiavut (Northern Labrador) in the east, these fellows are working on some of Northern Canada's great policy opportunities and most pressing challenges, including resource development, climate change, water protection, seal harvesting, language preservation, health, education, and leadership in governance.
