CHARS Site Preparation


Progress on CHARS

On July 7, 2014, site preparation work began in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut, for the Canadian High Arctic Research Station (CHARS). The site is being cleared and roughly leveled in preparation for the construction of the research station’s foundation.  

On May 21, 2014, as a result of an open, fair and transparent competitive process, the Canadian company EllisDon Corporation in a joint venture with NCC Dowland Construction Ltd. was awarded the contract to manage the construction of the Canadian High Arctic Research Station (CHARS).

The Chief Scientist has been selected: Dr. Martin Raillard will lead the implementation of the Science and Technology program as the Chief Scientist for CHARS as of March 3, 2014.
