The Canadian Mountain Podcast


Canada’s extensive mountain regions provide a wide range of benefits to Canadians such as fresh water, biocultural diversity, natural resources, recreation, and cultural and spiritual connection and healing. The Canadian Mountain Podcast is where you can hear the latest stories and findings from the Canadian Mountain Network, a national research network dedicated to the resilience and health of Canada’s mountain peoples and places. Each episode is produced by journalism students at Mount Royal University in Calgary, Alberta, and offers diverse perspectives from those living and working in our country’s varied and complex mountain regions. From academics to athletes and Indigenous Elders to policy makers, the Canadian Mountain Podcast brings you expert insights to explore the past, present, and future of mountain regions here in Canada and around the world.
