April/May Sneak Peek

We've got dispatches from the frontlines of Northern health care and so much more in this double issue of Up Here.

Ever wondered how healthcare works in a place where airplanes replace ambulances? In our April/May issue we talk to the people who make sure Northerners—coming from cities connected by highways and communities only reachable by air and water—get the care they need. Spoiler alert: it's not easy.

We also talk to Yellowknife cartoonist and author Alison McCreesh about her latest project, a series of postcards she illustrated on a trip around the Circumpolar North. It turns out, parts of Russia and Greenland have a lot in common with the Canadian North. And in the Yukon, we follow a new paddling trend: boats that fit in a backpack.

There's a lot more inside, so don't miss this issue.

As always, happy reading!
