The current focus of the NCP is on the high priority issues in communities where people are exposed to contaminants at levels of concern to health authorities, and on better understanding the issue of plastic pollution in the North and Arctic.
The NCP funds research, monitoring and related activities in Yukon, Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Nunavik and Nunatsiavut. This includes the traditional territories of Yukon First Nations and of the Dene and Metis of the Northwest Territories, and all of Inuit Nunangat. Proposals for work to be conducted outside these regions will be considered on a case-by-case basis according to their relevance to priorities and objectives identified in the NCP strategic guidance documents (the ‘NCP Blueprints’).
Multi-year proposals will be considered under the following subprograms:
- Human Health
- Environmental monitoring and research
- Community-based monitoring and research
- Communications, capacity and outreach
- Program coordination and Indigenous partnerships
There are no restrictions on who can apply for NCP research funding. Past applicants have included but have not been limited to:
- Indigenous governments and organizations
- Academic based researchers
- Government based researchers
- Not-for-profit organizations
- Northern or Indigenous community groups or individuals
