HAPPENING NOW

 

February 2, 2018: Since the launch of this website, the Nunavut Marine Council has been actively engaging with Inuit, Government, and other partners to increase awareness of the Council’s role in marine management and to investigate potential partnerships and funding opportunities related to protection and promotion of Nunavut’s marine areas.

A five-year strategic plan is currently being developed to outline the existing role of the Nunavut Marine Council as well as a vision for what it could accomplish with additional resources moving forward. It is expected that the strategic plan will be publically released in the coming months. 

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.
