Nunavut Planning Commission

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.

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.
