As an active member of my community in Canada’s remote north, I have grown to appreciate and understand the vital importance of business, particularly small entrepreneurs, in the health of communities.

The preliminary title of my dissertation is “The process of emergence of new sectors in remote regions: A case of the ICT sector in Yukon.”

This research is unique because it highlights how the emerging economy in a remote region of a circumpolar nation has evolved quite differently from similar economies in other parts of the developing world.

The aim of this study is to gain a more complex understanding of the factors that lead to business success. As part of my research project I will explore how ICT sectors in other remote communities have developed in comparison with the Yukon ICT sector. These comparative case studies will most likely be chosen from places in northern Denmark, Greenland, Iceland, northern Scotland, or other similarly remote regions in the circumpolar world.
