Nain Airstrip Impact Assessment, Environmental Assessment

Nain Airport – Feasibility Studies:
Impact Assessment/Environmental Assessment

The Nunatsiavut Government is planning to build a new certified airport for the Inuit Community of Nain, NL to replace the existing airport infrastructure that is currently under stress from the effects of climate change. The new site will have a gravel airstrip measuring 5000 ft in length and 100 ft in width, exclusive of the maneuvering areas, with a surface area of approximately 1300 m² set aside for future development. The New Airport will operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to serve the local population during all seasons and will act as the center for emergency response for the region.

The Nunatsiavut Government is currently seeking proposals for the completion of both the R3 Preliminary Environmental Review (PER) and the R12 Impact Assessments (IAs) of the Project and affected areas. The PER and IAs (R3 and R12) are to be completed together as a part of the same contract.

Proposals are to be received no later than 4:00 p.m. on January 17, 2022 to Darryl Shiwak, Deputy Minister of Nunatsiavut Affairs, via email at [email protected]
