About The Network

Working together to understand, manage and honour our mountains

The Canadian Mountain Network is a voluntary alliance of partners from universities, governments, Indigenous communities, and businesses dedicated to the sustainability of mountain environments and communities across the country and around the world.

Established in 2016, the CMN is in the early stages of establishing a forum for collaboratively addressing the diverse challenges facing mountain regions by harnessing existing capacities and seeking new resources.  Over the next 18 months, the CMN will lead the preparation of a national Networks of Centres of Excellence (NCE) proposal.

What We Do

The Canadian Mountain Network is a group composed of scientists, researchers, businesses, and community and indigenous partners working together for the sustainability of our mountain spaces and those communities who inhabit them.

Our Vision

The Canadian Mountain Network will become a national and global leader in inclusive, co-designed, interdisciplinary mountain-research that recognizes the interconnectedness of mountain systems, including the environment, economy, and society, by encouraging an integrated approach for long-term sustainability and serving the needs of mountain communities.
