QIA to hold interviews as part of land-use study to provide information for possible renewable energy project
Close to 30 Iqalummiut raised questions and shared their concerns over how renewable energy could be developed near Iqaluit, during a meeting this week at Cadet Hall.
The session focused on Qikiqtani Inuit Association’s Tusaqtavut study, which looks at Inuit use of land and water near the city.
Monday’s meeting was to gather information to be used when considering whether a renewable energy project could be developed near Iqaluit. What form that project could take — if it moves forward — hasn’t been decided, the meeting’s organizer said.
The meeting was hosted by Nunavut Nukkiksautiit Corp., a renewable energy corporation owned by Qikiqtaaluk Corp., and Firelight Group, which is consulting on behalf of QIA.
