The National Office of ICDP

Canada has a long history of participation in continental scientific drilling projects and joined the ICDP in 1998. The first Canadian ICDP project was the Mallik Gas Hydrate Research Well project in 2001-2002 in the North West Territories. Natural Resources Canada supported the membership of Canada during the first 10 years. In 2009 the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) committed itself to supporting Canadian membership in the ICDP for the next five years, giving Canadian scientists the opportunity to continue their involvement in ICDP activities and scientific planning. Canadian scientists currently coordinate ICDP activities in Canada through the Canadian Continental Drilling Program (CCDP). CCDP is also supported by INRS-ETE, and is having its coordination office at UQÀM. It is presently chaired by Pierre Francus from INRS-ETE.
