Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This article is the permafrost contribution to the "State of the Climate (2021)", an annual peer-reviewed report providing clear, reliable information on the current state of the Arctic environmental system relative to historical records. Information acquired from the Global Terrestrial Network for Permafrost (to which Canada contributes) indicates that permafrost continues to warm across the circumpolar region and in some regions such as the Canadian High Arctic the permafrost temperatures are the highest they have been in the past 3-4 decades. Since permafrost is an important component of the northern landscape, knowledge of how conditions are changing is essential for planning adaptation to a changing climate and to support decisions regarding northern development.
