Life in Canada’s North is a complex web of relationships between people, animals, plants, and the land itself. As this delicate balance is disturbed by changing conditions, such as warmer temperatures, pollution, and natural resource extraction, every living thing is affected. Some of the changes expected for Canada’s North are described in the resource sheets.
