Canadian Mountain Network: Better Together
Canadian mountain research
The Canadian Mountain Network (CMN) is a voluntary alliance of numerous partners from universities, colleges, governments, community organizations, First Nations and businesses dedicated to the sustainability of mountain environments and communities across the country and around the world. It was established in 2016 and is in the early stages of establishing a forum for collaboratively addressing the diverse challenges facing mountain regions by harnessing existing capacities and seeking new resources. Over the next 18 months, the CMN will lead the preparation of a national Networks of Centres of Excellence (NCE) proposal.

The first step in establishing our network is to form initiating groups across the country to understand mountain research needs, expand network participation and create more opportunities for collaboration. Yukon has been a leader in the early planning stages of this initiative and the Yukon Initiating Group will provide a focal point for future involvement.
