HAPPENING NOW

 

September 30, 2016: The Nunavut Marine Council is pleased to officially launch its new website at www.nunavutmarinecouncil.com. This new online resource will provide the public with greater access to the Council and its activities, while also providing a wide range of information on issues and initiatives related to Nunavut's marine areas. Importantly, the Nunavut Marine Council's correspondence and recommendations to Governments will also be made publically available through the "documents" tab of the new website.

Through its website, the Nunavut Marine Council hopes to help link those working on Arctic marine issues to the general public of Nunavut and Canada. The Council believes strongly in raising public awareness and encouraging increased engagement of Inuit and Nunavummiut (residents of Nunavut) to help ensure their voices and perspectives are given due consideration.

The Council will officially launch its website during Oceans Innovation 2016, October 4-5 in Iqaluit, Nunavut. A copy of the Council's presentation for this event is available in both English and Inuktitut under the "documents" tab of the website.

We invite you to explore the website and connect with us by sending a message through the form on the website main page, or by emailing us at info@nunavutmarinecouncil.com.
