Ocean Governance in the Arctic: A Canadian Perspective

This chapter describes how coastal and ocean governance in the Arctic is an area of great opportunity in that there are a small number of actors involved in comparison to other areas and there is also the flexibility that is often associated with a maturing governance system. The hope is that Arctic management and governance will embrace ways of doing things that foster the revolution in thought necessary to make up for lost time in carrying it into the future. The chapter has discussed a range of Arctic issues, bringing gaps and opportunities to the surface, in an effort to assess whether Canada’s current Arctic governance and management systems are adequate to address future challenges.
