NIRB SEA

NIRB SEA

The Nunavut Impact Review Board plans to identify the types of oil and gas development activities that could be proposed for Baffin Bay and Davis Strait, evaluate existing information and examine issues associated with possible development types. Part of the NIRB’s fact-finding mission will be to hold public meetings in communities on Baffin Bay and Davis Strait including Resolute Bay, Grise Fiord, Arctic Bay, Pond Inlet, Clyde River, Qikiqtarjuaq, Pangnirtung, Iqaluit, Kimmirut and Cape Dorset. These will be followed by further “public scoping sessions” in Fall 2017 so community members can provide more input and share feedback. The NMRIRB will be closely observing these activities and participating where appropriate.
