Research Support

The Western Arctic Research Centre has a strong history of supporting research and monitoring work in the western Canadian Arctic.

Our two technicians regularly travel to field sites to take samples, and to monitoring sites to download data, maintain equipment, and perform site inspections. They can be hired on a daily basis to accompany researchers to the field to assist with all types of research. They can also be hired to take samples or monitor equipment for research groups during off-seasons, while researchers are stationed at their home institutions. Please see our Fee Schedule for current rates for technician assistance. Since our technicians are in high demand, particularly during our busy summer season, please request technician assistance as far in advance as possible using our Logistical Support Request Form.

We can also help researchers find community monitors, guides, and assistants in Inuvik and other Western Arctic communities. Please contact the Manager, Western Arctic Research Centre for more information at 867-777-3298 ext. 232.
