Project Description:
The Canada C3 project is an epic journey to celebrate Canada and connect Canadians. Canada C3 is a signature initiative for Canada’s 150th Anniversary of Confederation in 2017. The centrepiece is an epic 150-day sailing journey from Toronto to Victoria via the Northwest Passage. Canada C3 will be in Nunavut between approximately July 28, 2017 and approximately September 5, 2017. Canada C3 will connect Canadians from coast to coast to coast and inspire a deeper understanding of our land, our peoples, and the past, present and future of our country. The 150-day ship-based expedition is divided into 15 legs, each leg will be approximately 10 days long. A total of 60 personnel will be on board the ship consisting of approximately 20 crew who will remain on the ship, approximately 25 participants and approximately 15 Canada C3 staff. The participants will represent a cross-section of Canadian society such as scientists, artists, Indigenous Elders, historians, business leaders, youth, newcomers, journalists, celebrities, and teachers who will tell their stories, share their experiences, conduct research, create art and music, and together celebrate Canada. The expedition will take place on board our expedition vessel, the M/V Polar Prince. All accommodations and meals for staff and passengers will take place onboard the vessel. At no point will any of our personnel be overnighting on land.

Waste and Impacts
Environmental Impacts
Canada C3 Expedition Leader, Geoff Green will work with the Captain of our expedition vessel, the M/V Polar Prince, to follow established visitor guidelines and standards when it comes to visiting areas in the Arctic. All steps will be taken to cause no environmenatl damage towards the land, water, flora and fauna. Goeff Green will consult the many Canada C3 partners including CWS, Students on Ice experts and the expertise of the Canada C3 participants. Canada C3 has not yet confirmed our participants but we will have local Indigneous people on each leg of our journey to help direct our programming, our education program and guide the expedition during community visits and visits to Migratory Bird Sanctuaries, National Wildlife Areas and other areas. When finalizing out land and Zodiac activities our expedition leader and expedition guides will consultwith our CWS partners, local Indigenous participants, our scientists and other experts in order to mitigate any impacts of our presence. Canada C3 will follow the Federal proposal that there will comply with the Canadian Wildlife Service Guidelines for National Wildlife Areas and visiting Seabird Colonies. The Ship will anchor at least 500m from the breeding cliffs and nesting islands and will be approached by Zodiac only. A maximum of 6 zodiacs with a maximum of 15 passengers each. The Zodiac cruises around the wildlife ares will last at most 2 hours. Passengers will be making observations from the Zodiac with the guidance of the expedition staff members. Noise will be kept to a minimum during zodiac cruises and landings. There will be no storage, refuelling, transfers, disposal or transport of fuel or waste within Nunavut. We have included jet fuel on our equipment and fuel list as the ship comes equipped with a helipad. However, Students on Ice does not have a helicopter and is not envisaging using one. Shore landings and Zodiac cruises will last at most 2 hours and landings will last on average 4 hours. A maximum of 6 zodiacs will be used with 15 passengers each.
