Torngat Mountains National Park

Parks Canada asks any potential Researchers to have their Research Permit Applications submitted before March 1st, 2024 for the 2024 summer field season. Applications received after this date may not be considered until the 2025 season.

A saw-tooth skyline of jagged peaks and glacier-carved fjords plunges towards iceberg-dotted indigo waters as polar bears and caribou roam amid some of Earth’s oldest rocks. The subarctic Torngat Mountains are an Inuit homeland, a treasury of the powerful stories, spirits and traditions of centuries of travellers. Inuit welcome visitors to join them in following ancient footsteps through a dramatic landscape - where nature and culture connect.
