Laboratories Canada and Nipîy Tu partner to help protect Wood Buffalo National Park

Nipîy Tu Research and Knowledge Centre has partnered with Laboratories Canada to increase collaboration and research capacity to protect the Wood Buffalo National Park, a UNESCO world heritage site. The partnership supports federal and Indigenous scientists operating in Fort Chipewyan, Alberta to expand existing research and monitoring capabilities to keep pace with the evolving challenges and opportunities in scientific development. Through this partnership, Laboratories Canada will help
Nipîy Tu Research and Knowledge Centre explore options for new scientific infrastructure and resources to help empower the centre to complete their scientific activities locally. The partners, who signed a Collaboration Agreement in spring 2023, share a common objective to increase Canada’s capacity to carry out important world-class scientific research and to bring together federal partners, Indigenous communities, academia and other partners to solve complex challenges.
