This paper is focused on a hypothetical sinking of the MS Arctic Sun in Cumberland Sound, Nunavut, Canada. By exploring current emergency management preparedness capacity in the Arctic, including methods of communication, collaboration, resource-sharing, authority and jurisdiction, the question “are we ready?” for emergencies ranging in scope from the local to the international will be answered. A combination of baseline issue research, participatory action research and scenario assessment will inform the development of policy recommendations to prepare for emergency management responsibilities in the 21st-century Arctic.
