The Government of Canada is committed to supporting governments, Northerners and scientists to better understand contaminant levels in traditionally harvested foods that are important to the diet of Indigenous people and northerners. For more than 25 years, the Northern Contaminants Program (NCP) has funded innovative research projects that are guided by both scientific and traditional.

Canada, has been conducting field research in Ellesmere Island National Park Reserve (EINPR) since During May, a study on contaminants in Lake Hazen sediments was conducted (Muir et . The Northern Contaminants Program (NCP) was established in in response to concerns about human exposure to elevated levels of contaminants in wildlife species that are important to the traditional diets of Northern Aboriginal peoples. Early studies indicated that there had been a wide spectrum of substances such as, persistent organic pollutants (POPs), heavy metals, and radionuclides. His research has advanced the state-of-the-science of air and water pollution measurement, models of potential exposures to chemicals in consumer products, and environmental impact assessments. He established the Engineering Ethics program and is a key collaborator in the Responsible Conduct of Research Program at Duke University. The Northern Contaminants Program funds a number of projects, including air measurements at Little Fox Lake, fish monitoring in Lake Laberge and Kusawa Lake, and Moose and caribou monitoring. These research programs provide information back to the Northern Contaminants Program and also to educational institutions such as Yukon College and Trent University.
