The Canada C3 Science Program

The Canada C3 expedition is a platform for researchers from across the country to conduct studies on land and at sea.

Our Science Program includes research proposals from renowned experts, featuring a diverse range of topics, including a coastal marine soundscape, the impact of microplastics and the hybrid offspring of polar bears and grizzly bears — the pizzly. And that’s just three examples!

Canada C3’s rich scientific program will serve to expand our scientific knowledge base for future projects and future generations. Through our expedition’s unique route, researchers had an opportunity to study lesser known areas of Canada’s coastline. As they travelled on board the Canada C3 vessel, researchers met with communities and drew on traditional ecological knowledge, contributing to their current research projects and providing inspiration for future studies.
