Abstract:Cruise tourism in Arctic Canada is increasing, albeit haphazardly. This article discusses the elements of management and planning that are expected to be important in the development of sustainable cruise tourism activities in Arctic Canada. Stakeholders might benefit from cruise tourism management and planning being given higher priority in approaches to integrated coastal management. This approach is viewed as useful in northern Canada where resource management operates in an environment of uncertainty. There is a sense of urgency to address the issues raised because sovereignty challenges and climate change are likely to accelerate the development of cruise tourism in the Canadian Arctic.
