A few words about us

The NMRWB is the main instrument of wildlife management in the Nunavik Marine Region. The NMRWB aims to consider both western science and traditional Inuit knowledge, or Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit (IQ) when making wildlife management decisions.

The NMRWB is an institution of public government that was created and operates under the Nunavik Inuit Land Claim Agreement (NILCA).

How it all came to be…

The Nunavik Inuit Land Claim Agreement

The Governments of Canada and Nunavut and Makivik Corporation, an organization that represents about 10,000 Inuit in Nunavik, signed the Nunavik Inuit Land Claims Agreement (NILCA; read more in the About the Board section) on December 1, 2006. It came into effect on February 14, 2008. The NILCA addresses the use, management and ownership of Nunavut land and resources in James Bay, Hudson Bay, Hudson Strait and Ungava Bay, as well as a portion of northern Labrador and an offshore area adjacent to Labrador.
