Public Guides

The NIRB has a series of public guides in place which provide a general overview of the NIRB and its Screening, Review and Monitoring processes. These guides are available in English, French, Inuktitut and Inuinnaqtun and can be viewed online or downloaded to your personal computer.

Coordinated Process Guides

The NIRB and the Nunavut Water Board (NWB) have a public guide in place which describes the coordinated process which can be requested for the consideration of Type A Water Licence Applications associated with major development projects under Review by the NIRB. The Detailed Coordinated Process Framework allows for a shortened NWB water licensing process to follow the NIRB impact assessment process, through running both processes concurrently.  

NEW Draft Technical Guides

The NIRB is currently developing a new series of technical guides targeted at specific audiences, to facilitate more intense engagement:

These guides reflect the updated impact assessment process under the Nunavut Planning and Project Assessment Act (NuPPAA) and, as such, will be finalized for the coming into force of NuPPAA.
