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.

The North's Aboriginal toursim industry, though young, has a lot to offer - we pick nine unique tours, cultural centres, and more that will give you a taste. Also this month, Baffin Island's Amazing Auyuittuq National Park, stories of being newcomers in the North, and a Northerner heads south and becomes an Arctic ambassador to the world.
