The Nunavut Research Institute (NRI) was created in 1999 when Nunavut became a new territory. Under the Arctic Research Infrastructure Fund a new research institute and teaching facility were constructed in 2011. The institute is now a gathering place for scientists and researchers where their knowledge can be shared with Nunavummiut.
During the summer of 2017 NRI hosted the Prince of Wales visit to the eastern Arctic with numerous exhibits of culture and science on display. The Nunavut Research Institute is grateful for CASC’s assistance in making it possible for NRI to bring well known scientists to present at the institute.
