Enabling Resiliency in the Face of Climate Change:

SmartICE is an award-winning technological innovation for the North.

We are the worldʼs first suite of climate change adaptation tools to integrate traditional knowledge of ice with advanced data acquisition, remote monitoring technology and mapping. Our system combines these approaches to provide invaluable, data-driven insights into sea ice thickness and local ice conditions, in near real-time. We embrace a business model that aims to expand opportunities for economic and social development in northern markets while preserving local cultures and lifestyles.

Social Impact

Our social enterprise business model is consistent with Inuit societal values, and commits to maximizing social impact and creating positive community change while collaboratively delivering ice information services with communities, for communities.
