Canada’s security is often taken for granted due to our shared border with the United States. But one area of emerging risk is the Arctic. For this two-part episode, MLI Senior Fellow Balkan Devlen spoke with Brigadier-General Pascal Godbout, Commander, Joint Task Force (North) regarding JTF North’s role and mission, how the force engages with local and Indigenous communities, the whole of government approach to Arctic security, and more. Devlen also spoke with Vice-Admiral (Ret’d) Mark Norman regarding Canada’s partnerships security, interests, and sovereignty in the Arctic. The discussion also looks critically at what needs to be done to ensure that Canadian interests are protected in a changing far North.
