To answer these central research questions, five research teams represented by six Canadian Universities are working across the entire coastal region to understand different pieces of the puzzle, which will be brought back all together at the completion to present a full picture of the problem. These individual research components are presented in the “OUR WORK” section of this web site.
Research oversight is provided by a Steering Committee made up of representatives of the signatory parties to the Agreement, Cree Nation Government, Hydro-Québec and Niskamoon Corporation, as well as from the Cree Nation of Chisasibi, the Cree Nation of Wemindji, the Cree Nation of Eastmain, the Cree Nation of Waskaganish and Canadian Wildlife Service (Environment Canada).
