Position Statement 

Caribou habitat protection and development 

The Government of Nunavut (GN) supports the protection of caribou calving and post-calving grounds. The GN will review and provide advice on a case by case basis with respect to responsible development in key access corridors, but only if there is sound mitigation plans, with seasonal restrictions on all activities in calving and post-calving grounds, that are vetted and approved through the appropriate regulatory bodies.
