The Canadian Mountain Assessment


The Canadian Mountain Assessment provides a first-of-its-kind look at what we know, do not know, and need to know about mountains in Canada. It is based on insights from Indigenous knowledges of mountains, as well as findings from an extensive assessment of pertinent academic literature. The Canadian Mountain Assessment's inclusive knowledge co-creation approach brings these diverse forms of evidence together in ways that enhance our collective understanding of mountains in Canada, while also respecting and maintaining the integrity of different knowledge systems. The book is the outcome of over three years of work and contributions from more than 70 Indigenous and non-Indigenous authors. The groundbreaking collection of knowledge clarifies challenges and opportunities specific to mountain systems and will inform mountain action, policy and research.
