Established in 1984, the Canadian Society for Circumpolar Health (CSCH) is a non-governmental organization and registered charity dedicated to improving the health of circumpolar people in Canada.

We are a member-driven organization of scholars, professionals, health care practitioners and community members. CSCH membership is open to everybody who supports our mission.

As a volunteer-run organization, the CSCH relies on membership fees help support administrative costs and CSCH activities that support our mission. In return, we offer useful benefits to our members.
