On October 21, 2021 the Nunavut Planning Commission (NPC or Commission) postponed the Regional Public Hearings in respect of the 2021 DNLUP that were originally scheduled for November 2021 to March 2022 to provide all participants adequate time to review materials in Inuktitut, English or French. As a result of the most recent Covid-19 outbreak in Nunavut in January 2022, the Commission further postponed the regional public hearings to the fall of 2022. Due to the recent easing of travel restrictions and changes to public health measures across Nunavut allowing for public gatherings, the NPC has decided to proceed with its plans to hold in-person public hearings in the Kitikmeot, Kivalliq, Qikiqtaaluk (North/South Baffin, Nunavik) Regions, and for affected Dënesųłiné communities in September to November 2022. The Qikiqtaaluk hearings remain subject to the availability of funding.
Copies of the 2021 DNLUP and Options and Recommendations document and all submissions filed in the NPC’s public record in association with the DNLUP are available online at: http://lupit.nunavut.ca/portal/registry.php. The Interactive maps and GIS files of the maps are available on the NPC’s website at www.nunavut.ca.
Hard copies of 2021 DNLUP and Options and Recommendations and the executive summary documents have been sent to the Municipal offices in each community. HTOs are asked to visit the Municipal office to pick up copies if they have not yet received them.
