COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT VISITS IN THE KITIKMEOT

Please see the attached schedule of upcoming community visits in the Kitikmeot region to engage communities on the 2016 Draft Nunavut Land Use Plan (DNLUP).

 

The Nunavut Planning Commission released the 2016 DNLUP in June 2016 to encourage discussion on land use planning in the Nunavut Settlement Area. The Commission has received a significant amount of written feedback on the 2016 DNLUP and held an in-person public hearing in Iqaluit in March 2017 for communities in the Qikiqtani region as well as transboundary Nunavik communities.  The Commission has now received funding to complete consultations on the 2016 DNLUP by conducting community visits in the Kivalliq and Kitikmeot regions, rather than further public hearings. Community visits in the Kivalliq Region are being scheduled for early 2020.
