The Canada Goose Arctic Gallery to Open for Canada 150 at the Canadian Museum of Nature!

| October 19, 2016 | 5 Comments

The Arctic is one Canada’s most unknown locals in the country. Most Canadians have not stepped foot in this region, yet it is so important to our nation’s identity. The Canadian Museum of Nature announced its 10-year partnership with Canada Goose to reveal plans for their contribution to the Canada 150 celebrations. They announced they are opening the permanent Canada Goose Arctic Gallery to show a part of the nation that has many misconceptions made about it. This gallery is set to open on June 21, 2017.

 Were you aware that Canada’s Arctic makes up roughly 40% of our country’s land mass, is populated by over 100 000 people, and has an array of land and marine life? The aim of this gallery is to gain more of an appreciation for the Arctic and to change how people think about this beautiful region of the country.

The Museum of Nature had visual boards to help us conceptualize what they have planned for the layout of the gallery. It will be split up into four areas:

  • The Geography Zone – displays concept of the Arctic and how it has changed over time from various perspectives.
  • The Climate Zone – explains the rate of change within this region.
  • The Sustainability Zone – demonstrates how Natives live, work and use this land’s resources.
  • The Ecosystems Zone – shows the relationships between the life on land and marine life, as well as how it is connected to other ecosystems around the world.
