Common menu bar links


This page is intended to make your navigation of the International Polar Year web site easier. Browsing this site is assisted by the use of the top navigation bar and the left side menu.


Links have been coded into the top of the page to aid screen reading software in skipping over the menus. These "Skip Navigation" links are found immediately following the Government of Canada graphic. The first link will take you to the start of the content on the page, skipping all navigation at the top and the side. The link that follows skips over only the top navigation and brings you to the side sub-menu.

While every reasonable effort has been made to ensure the accessibility of this site, some content or services found here might be inaccessible to some visitors. In those circumstances, the contact information for someone who can assist you has been provided.


The Search Engine offers quick access to information through bilingual (French or English) keyword or phrases searches. This is particularly useful for users who wish to find specific information.

If you are unable to locate the information you require, please contact us.
