One of Canada’s key accomplishments as a nation since the influx of the first settlers has been the development of the country through the exploration of, settling and development of some of the most inhospitable land on earth.

The Plan Nord is probably the most ambitious plan ever undertaken in this country. Following input from the Quebec and regional governments, First Nations, Inuit, economical, social, community and environmental representatives, a strategy has been created to set the Plan Nord in motion.
