Welcome

TO THE NIRB WEBSITE AND PUBLIC REGISTRY

Located in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut, the Nunavut Impact Review Board (NIRB) is Nunavut’s environmental assessment agency, with responsibilities for assessing the potential impacts of proposed projects before any required permits, licences and approvals can be granted. The NIRB’s mission is to protect and promote the well-being of the Environment and Nunavummiut through the impact assessment process.

This website has been designed to provide background information on the NIRB, its responsibilities, events and activities, and to make the information related to the NIRB’s assessments as accessible as possible through the associated public registry and newsfeeds.

We encourage you to make your voice heard through the various stages of the NIRB’s environmental assessment process, from Screening to Review to Monitoring. Your input can make a positive difference for your family, your community, the environment and for Nunavut’s future!
