The Commission has committed to providing a 2023 Recommended Nunavut Land Use Plan to the Government of Canada, Government of Nunavut, and Nunavut Tunngavik Inc. for their consideration. The Commission acknowledges the requests for an extension of time to provide final written comments on the 2021 DNLUP. Recognizing the importance of the issues and knowing that many participants wish to provide additional information, the Commissioners have agreed that an extension is beneficial to the overall process.

As a result,

  1. the Commission has agreed to extend the date for FINAL written comments to February 10th, 2023. This date will not be extended further, and any submissions that are received after that date may not be incorporated into the deliberation by the Commissioners in considering the 2023 Recommended Nunavut Land Use Plan.
  2. Further, the Commissioners have agreed that all participants should have an additional 2-week period following the February 10th date for the SOLE purpose of providing comments on any written submissions received by February 10th. The deadline for these responses/comments is February 24, 2023. Please note that this is not an extension of written submissions - only a period to respond or provide comments to submissions received by February 10th.  Responses/Comments to any written submission must be provided using the attached template (Appendix I).

Written submissions on the 2021 DNLUP must be submitted by email at , by fax at 867-979-3443, or by mail at Box 1797, Iqaluit, Nunavut X0A 0H0. Participants with capacity are encouraged to provide translated copies of their submissions.
