Utilize the fact that northern areas like Nunavut, Northwest Territories, Yukon Territories, and the northern parts of the larger provinces have more extreme conditions by using them as development areas for housing, food growth, compact machines that do not damage environment when they go to the dump (or inexpensive recycling methods),  and harnessing electricity with the intent to use the developments to further the idea of space travel and colonization, food growth methods in third world areas with extreme weather conditions such as deserts and polar areas, and creating clean power with less chance of polluting the biosphere.

This would increase the quality of life in the more isolated areas in Canada for the people who call it home, as well as create technology that Canada can sell worldwide by using what Canada has instead of having to create artificial environments as fully as would be necessary if such work was done in the warmer southern areas of Canada.

One example: seeing if shrimp farming can be adapted to use in northern Canada where sunlight is limited, using alternative light sources run by alternative energy sources such as wind power.

Another example: Using old mines explore development of self-sufficient subterranean habitats that include horticulture and aquaculture.

If you want power that is cheap, clean, abundant and "almost" has absolutely no negative environment impacts of any kind, the solution is gathering it out of the sky as radio energy. Funny thing is, when the Northern Lights show up in the sky, it's should actually makes it easier to for radio energy collection technologies to work better and more efficient then normal.
