About Us


A place for those interested in Polar research to learn, share, and connect.

We are an inclusive network of early career Polar scientists that love to talk all things Polar. From social to ocean policy, fish to birds, and plants to permafrost, you will be able to find a member to connect with! APECS Canada currently has over 800 members who partake in both national and international events via the larger, global Association of Early Career Polar Scientists.

The Board

APECS Canada was formed in Montréal during the International Polar Year From Knowledge to Action 2012 conference. Previous board members have worked hard to build membership capacity and establish long-term, trusting polar partnerships. 

The APECS Canada terms of reference have recently been updated.
