Northern Contaminants Program
February 24, 2014 - Canada
“The Northern Contaminants Program (NCP) co-ordinates Canada’s action on northern contaminants, including Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) and mercury, both nationally and internationally. The NCP is a multidisciplinary initiative, funded by the Government of Canada, addressing health, science, and communications issues related to contaminants in Canada’s Arctic. It was established in 1991 through the Government of Canada’s Green Plan and Arctic Environmental Strategy (AES).
The NCP secretariat is part of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC). It is managed by a committee chaired by AANDC and consists of four federal government departments (AANDC, Health Canada, Environment Canada, Fisheries and Oceans Canada), the territorial governments (Nunavut, Northwest Territories, the Yukon) and representatives of Northern Aboriginal organizations including Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami (ITK), Inuit Circumpolar Council – Canada (ICC), Dene Nation and the Council of Yukon First Nations.”
