Eleven Finalists Selected for the 2019 Arctic Inspiration Prize

Eleven exceptional projects have been selected as finalists for the 2019 Arctic Inspiration Prize (AIP). The projects vary in scope and focus, but each and every one demonstrates the potential to generate lasting impact across Canada’s North.

As the largest annual prize in Canada with a focus on the Arctic, the Arctic Inspiration Prize (AIP) encourages, enables and celebrates the inspiring achievements of the people of the North. The AIP recognizes diverse teams and enables their innovative projects in the fields of education, sustainable housing, health, performing arts, traditional knowledge, language, and science. Each year, the AIP awards up to $3 million: one $1 million prize, up to four prizes of up to $500,000 each, and up to seven youth prizes of up to $100,000 each.

The Laureates will be announced at the AIP’s 8th Annual Awards Ceremony, to be held at the Shaw Centre in Ottawa on February 5, 2020 in conjunction with the Northern Lights Business and Cultural Showcase. Join us for this unforgettable evening! Purchase your tickets on the Northern Lights Registration page.
