Complete project proposals are required to facilitate the NMRIRB screening processes and should include information about the proposed project, where the proposed location will be, how the project will be carried out, the timing of all project related activities and other supporting information to assist in evaluating the potential for impacts to occur from the proposed activities.
Until March 2022, the following forms outline the information requirements for proponents.
Project proposals should be designed to provide plain-language information in sufficient detail to ensure the NMRIRB and the general public can fully understand the scope of the proposed activities and how their potential impacts would be managed by the proponent.
The NMRIRB will screen projects both in the marine areas and on land within the NMR. To note, approximately 80% of the islands within the NMR are privately held (surface and sub-surface) by the Makivik Corporation in fee simple on behalf of the Nunavik Inuit. As land-owners of these islands, and portions of islands, Makivik Corporation requires Entry and Access permits to be obtained by project proponents and will require a Release of Liability if proponents are granted entry and access to Nunavik Inuit Lands (NIL). In addition, Makivik Corporation will reserve the right to negotiate further terms and conditions as they see fit.
