Since 1947 the Arctic Circle has brought together friends who share a lively interest in the Canadian north for monthly presentations by members and guests, and on 8 April 2014 the Arctic Circle held a celebratory evening in honour of the 500th meeting.

As is tradition, on 28 April 2016, the Arctic Circle will hold its annual banquet featuring guest speaker Ken McGoogan, well known Toronto author of several Arctic books: Fatal Passage, Ancient Mariner, Lady Franklin's Revenge, and, more recently, Race to the Polar Sea. If you are interested in attending, it is not too late. To book a remaining available seat,  please contact Thomas Frisch, Secretary, at 613-725-2227 or

The Circle’s membership includes many of Canada’s most distinguished arctic researchers, as well as those with a more informal interest in the north.

This site will introduce you to the organization and its members, and to one of the most fascinating regions of our planet. Enjoy your visit, and come visit us at our next gathering.
