Polar Continental Shelf Logistics Support


Due to the harsh and dangerous working conditions in Canada's expansive Arctic and Sub-arctic regions, there is an ongoing need to provide safe, efficient and cost-effective logistical support throughout the Canadian Arctic. The Polar Continental Shelf Program, as mandated by the Resources and Technical Surveys Act, coordinates and delivers efficient and cost-effective logistical support to researchers conducting field work in the Canadian Arctic, such as air transportation to and from remote field camps, equipment and fuel.  PCSP also provides accommodations at their facility in Resolute, NU. This service is delivered to researchers from Canadian government agencies, northern communities, and independent and university groups, as well as international academia conducting scientific activities in remote and isolated areas throughout the Canadian Arctic thereby contributing to the safety of visiting scientists in the Canadian Arctic regions.
