Canadian relationship with its portion of the Arctic region revolves around the dramatic split between the appearance of absent-minded governance, bordering on indifference toward the region, and the raging nationalism during moments of actual and perceived challenge toward the sovereignty of the imagined Canadian Arctic region. This lecture will explore Canada’s relationship with the Arctic region, pushing against the common argument that the relationship is largely a reactionary phenomenon to the actual and perceived Americanization of Canada. This lecture encourages the audience to consider the complexity and nuances of the evolution of the Canadian relationship with the Arctic region in order to more fully appreciate the implications of this relationship on Canada’s approach toward international relations pertaining to the Arctic region.
