Current regulations

The 2022-23 Nunavut Hunting Regulations are available as a PDF or in print at your local Wildlife Office.

New as of 2015

On July 1 2015, the Government of Nunavut Department of Environment is implementing new regulations under the Wildlife Act. The regulations change some of the rules for harvesting in Nunavut, and may affect those involved in wildlife-related businesses, wildlife research, or other fields where wildlife or wildlife habitat could be impacted.
