Nunavut’s Regulatory System

Nunavut has an integrated regulatory system established by the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement and further defined by the Nunavut Planning and Project Assessment Act and the Nunavut Waters and Nunavut Surface Rights Tribunal Act.

Through the integrated regulatory system the Nunavut Impact Review Board coordinates and cooperates with the Nunavut Planning Commission, the Nunavut Water Board and other agencies.

Process maps have been developed by the NIRB and are available to help illustrate Nunavut’s integrated regulatory system.
