The AEC is open to corporations, partnerships and indigenous groups that have an economic interest in the Arctic. The AEC Legacy membership includes three business representatives from each Arctic state and three representatives from each Permanent Participant organization. The AEC welcomes the participation of other stakeholders from across the globe as non-voting members.




Business list

The AEC organizations in each Arctic state and the Permanent Participants of the Arctic Council can each name up to three representatives to the AEC. These 42 representatives form the AEC Legacy membership. This is the voting membership of the AEC.

The AEC Legacy Members represent the pan-Arctic business community from across the wide scope of Arctic commerce. With representation from businesses from all eight Arctic states and from Permanent Participants, the AEC represents the width of the Arctic business community. The AEC Legacy membership ranges from small and medium-sized businesses and traditional livelihoods to larger shipping and extractive industries.

Global focus is shifting north and there is growing interest by non-AEC members to participate in the AEC. If we are true to the “AEC Way” of building on the pillars of collaboration, partnership, innovation and peace, it is imperative for the AEC to provide both Arctic and sub-Arctic stakeholders an opportunity to participate, interact and collaborate with the Legacy Members of the AEC.

By creating two different non-voting membership categories the AEC ensures that it is open to corporations, partnerships and indigenous groups that have an economic interest in the Arctic. Members may contribute to AEC content, in various forms including, but not limited to, submitting ideas, participating in Working Groups and making presentations.

The Non-voting membership is divided into two classes:

Arctic Partner:   Corporations, businesses, partnerships and indigenous groups coming from both the Arctic and from sub-Arctic regions, has the opportunity to join the AEC as an Arctic Partner.

Permafrost Partner: Micro, small or medium businesses that are not subsidiaries with 15 employees or less with their business domiciled or headquarters located within an Arctic state has the opportunity to join the AEC as a Permafrost Parter.
