The Cumulative Impacts Research Consortium (CIRC) is a research and community outreach initiative based at the University of Northern British Columbia dedicated to enhancing our understanding of the positive and negative cumulative impacts of resource development in northern B.C. Our research aims to integrate environmental, community and health values and perspectives, and account for diverse forms of knowledge and information. Informed by our community outreach and engagement, CIRC seeks to enhance on the ground capacity to respond to issues related to cumulative impacts.

For an overview of the CIRC's research and outreach activities throughout 2017, we invite you to review our 2017 Annual Report, found below:
