To the members of the Kangiqlinip Hunter’s & Trappers Organization:
It has come to our attention that an unfounded claim is being made against the Kivalliq Inuit Association with respect to consideration of exploration and/or of development on caribou calving grounds.
This is not true. It is an unsubstantiated and unfounded claim without merit.
The Kivalliq Inuit Association’s role 11 30 promote the economic, cultural, and social well-being of Inuit in the Kivalliq Region and ensure that Inuit Owned Lands are managed in accordance with the principles set out In the Nunavut Agreement. In doing so, the Kivalliq Inuit Association puts the highest importance to the protection of caribou, while considering any potential economic development opportunities that will benefit the region as a whole.
It is our collective duty to ensure that the robust regulatory regime In Nunavut is followed by all parties including the Nunavut Impact Review Board, the Nunavut Water Board, the Nunavut Planning Commission,KIA Lands and others, so that all rights of Inuit are considered and addressed on a project by project basis to determine the impacts any development may have on wildlife, including caribou.
No decisions have been made by the Kivalliq Inuit Association with respect to development on the calving grounds.
Kono Tattoinee President
