ARCTIC RANGERS: THE EYES AND EARS OF CANADA'S NORTH
North of the 60th parallel is Canada's last frontier: wild abandon from the tree line to the vast, seemingly never ending tundra of the high arctic. As the trees fade, polar bears, seals, walruses, caribou, wolves and arctic foxes roam wild across the white snowy deserts of the north, providing sustenance to Inuit communities as well as fuelling centuries old stories. Inuit history and culture in the Canadian Arctic dates back to the Thule People, who arrived in the region just over a thousand years ago. It is from centuries of inherited arctic knowledge that the Canadian Rangers pass down indispensable arctic survival and navigation skills. The Rangers of the north are the Canadian Armed Forces' eyes and ears on the ground, tasked with search and rescue operations, ground patrols and maintaining Canadian sovereignty over this vast territory. This is the land of the Arctic Rangers.
