New consultation requirement for researchers working in or near Clyde River

As of April 1, 2021, the community of Clyde River requires that all researchers interested in applying for a Nunavut research license to conduct research in or near Clyde River first complete a letter of intent (LOI). This process ensures that potential research applications align with community priorities, interests, and needs, and creates a more efficient and effective system for applications and review. Please complete this template. Add extra space as needed. The template must be completed in both Inuktitut and English and submitted to Ittaq, with the support of the Hamlet Council and Nammautaq HTO, coordinates the review of LOIs, as well as research license applications to Clyde River. LOIs are reviewed monthly; allow up to 4 weeks for review. If approved, applicants will be invited to submit a full NRI research license application. Invitation to submit an NRI application does not guarantee license approval. For any questions or to receive/submit an LOI template, contact Ittaq at
