About the Arctic Inspiration Prize
As the largest annual prize in Canada, each year the Arctic Inspiration Prize recognizes diverse teams with innovative projects in the fields of education, sustainable housing, health, performing arts, traditional knowledge, language, and science.
The Arctic Inspiration Prize is by the North and for the North and is a community of people and groups, including Indigenous organizations, academia, governments, non-governmental organizations, industry, philanthropy, media and arts and culture organizations, who share a common goal: to recognize northern innovation and excellence and encourage teamwork for the betterment of life in Canada’s North.
The Arctic Inspiration Prize is led by a Charitable Trust, composed of a majority of northern Trustees, with staff and support provided by its managing partner, the Rideau Hall Foundation.
