North Warning System

The North Warning Systems sites will still be operating like they have since World War Two.

Inuit have been employed at these sites for many years.

Senator Bill Rompkey of Ottawa says these sites could have been turned over to Public tenders.

He says this will not happen now.

A new contract is in place that will see the radar sites systems run by the same companies as before.

This will be for a 2 year term.

Reviews will take place during the term.


  1. That's terrific news! I wish the term was longer than 2 years but for now that's good breathing room to firm up something more long-term and secure an important element of Inuit economic development across Canada's North.

  2. Who has the North Warning System contract now?
    Who are the other interested companies?
