Since 2015, the Canadian Polar Data Workshop (CPDW) has been a forum for supporting and advancing polar data initiatives in Canada. Structured to reach specific outcomes, these workshops have helped to develop Canada’s national polar data strategies and to further national objectives in the areas of data discovery, federated search, data interoperability, knowledge transfer, and Indigenous data sovereignty. The first three workshops resulted in significant progress toward Canada’s leadership in global polar data initiatives, notably the summary reports, contributions to the Arctic Observing Summit, and the realization of the CCADI partnership.

The Canadian Polar Data Workshop IV will be held May 23-27, 2022 in Victoria, British Columbia, at the Delta Hotels Victoria Ocean Pointe Resort. Virtual access will also be available via Zoom.
