About 300 participants from many countries attended the Arctic Circle Québec Forum, which was held at the Québec City Convention Centre, December 11-13, 2016.
The Forum was opened by Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson, Chairman Arctic Circle and former President of Iceland (1996-2016), and Philippe Couillard, Premier of Québec. Discussions focused on the sustainable development of northern regions, including Canada, Alaska, Greenland, as well as northern areas of Norway and Finland.
Among the highlights was a historic speech by Foreign Minister Vittus Qujaukitsoq on the future of Greenland, which has caused dynamic discussions across the Arctic.
