The Nunavut Planning Commission (NPC) is responsible for the development, implementation and monitoring of land use plans that guide and direct resource use and development in the Nunavut Settlement Area.
Currently, the NPC implements and monitors the North Baffin Regional Land Use Plan and the Keewatin Regional Land Use Plan. More information on these land use plans and how the NPC implements and monitors them can be found here.
The NPC is also working on a Draft Nunavut Land Use Plan. Once approved, this Nunavut-wide plan will replace the North Baffin and Keewatin Regional Land Use Plans. To gather feedback on the Draft Plan, the NPC is hosting a series of community workshops and information sessions. The schedule for community visits can be found in the News items below.
The NPC welcomes feedback and comments on all aspects of its mandate and encourages you to contact us with any questions, comments, or concerns regarding land use planning in Nunavut.
The Commission will host workshops and gather feedback on the Draft Plan in every Nunavut municipality, as well as with the Inuit of Nunavik and the Athabasca and Manitoba Denesuline over the next year. Additional dates to be determined.
A new webpage has been added for Plan Amendments to approved land use plans.
Further to the NPC’s public notice published November 18, 2013, it is the intention of the Nunavut Planning Commission (NPC) to conduct a Review with the Nunavut Impact Review Board (NIRB) of the transportation corridor proposed as part of the Baffinland Iron Mine Corporations (BIMC) Early Revenue Phase (ERP) for the Mary River Project.
