See Map

Polar Shelf provides ground and air support services to approximately 150 scientific groups from more than 40 Canadian and international universities or government agencies. Scientific projects using PCSP's services cover every discipline, from archaeology to space science to zoology. Its bases at Resolute Bay on Cornwallis Island in the eastern Arctic and at Tuktoyaktuk on the coast of the Beaufort Sea in the western Arctic serve as staging areas for research conducted in virtually any location in the Arctic - on land or on the frozen sea ice - from the borders of Alaska and Greenland, up to the North Pole.
