The Nunavut Planning Commission has consulted with planning partners since 2007 to inform the development of the Draft Nunavut Land Use Plan. Until 2017 an online Consultation Record was maintained for the Draft Nunavut Land Use Plan process. As a result of Section 201 (1) of the Nunavut Planning and Project Assessment Act, the Commission is mandated to maintain a Public Registry, making available to the public all relevant documents, including those related to the Nunavut Land Use Plan. The Commission’s Public Registry has replaced the Consultation Record; however, an archived version of the 2007-2017. Consultation Record is found below in the form of a Log. All material associated with the development of the Nunavut Land Use Plan is now available on the Public Registry.
