The Contractor will work collaboratively with Inuit knowledge-holders, community members and Parks Canada experts to summarize, conduct and share oral history research related to Inuit knowledge of the 1845 Franklin Expedition and the wrecks of HMS Erebus and HMS Terror.

The objectives of the project are:
