Exploration in the Canadian Arctic [Inuktitut Version]

François Cartier and Guislaine Lemay , McCord Museum

Exploration of the Arctic has been a facet of Canadian history from the arrival of the first Europeans in North America until today. The main motivation behind European expeditions to this terra incognita is to seek a navigable passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific. The country that discovers this route will have direct access to the wealth of the Orient.
