Abstract

The purpose of this study is to make a brief overview of Canada's jurisdiction in the arctic regions, jurisdiction which has developed since the transfer of the Arctic Islands to Canada by Great Britain in 1880. The study will concentrate on Canada's jurisdiction over the water areas of the Arctic, but will also cover the status of the other areas involved. More specifically, the areas to be covered are: 1) the islands; 2) the continental shelf; 3) the waters in general; 4) the Northwest Passage; and 5) the airspace.
