Discover Arctic data.

Our Arctic Research Data Infrastructure supports efficient, effective discovery and use of data.
Our services


Founded in 2015, the Canadian Consortium for Arctic Data Interoperability (CCADI) is a collaboration among Canadian Arctic data centres with the common goal of providing ethically open, accessible, and comprehensive digital resources to the broadest possible audience of data users.

In 2018, CCADI received funding from the Canadian Foundation for Innovation (CFI) to develop an Arctic Research Data Infrastructure (ARDI). The ARDI is an integrated Canadian Arctic data management system that facilitates information discovery, establishes sharing standards, enables interoperability among existing data infrastructures, and that is co-designed with, and accessible to, a broad user base. Currently, the ARDI supports three use cases centred on:

  • Vulnerability Assessment of Coastal Archaeological Sites in the Western Canadian Arctic
  • MOD-AAT (Merged Observatory Data for Arctic Air Temperature): mobilizing records of air temperature from station operators in the circumpolar Arctic
  • Ocean Acidification in the Surface Layer – South Beaufort Sea
CCADI organizations from across Canada.
