Title: Land use planning in Nunavut: Exploring Canada's newest planning jurisdiction
Author: Robinson, Amy
Department: School of Environmental Design and Rural Development
Abstract: The following research report assesses the compatibility of western planning practice in the Nunavut, looking at territorial, regional, and municipal planning. The research report begins by examining historic planning dynamics in Nunavut. Then an overview of key planning legislation in Nunavut is reviewed. Finally a static review of modern territorial, regional, and municipal planning issues are discussed. Planning is inherently an optimistic profession that, regardless of past failures, attempts to improve a given jurisdiction, paying particular attention to the needs and desires of its citizens. For this reason planning is an important tool intended to enable and empower Inuit self-governance goals inherent in the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement. Through increased territorial, and moreover federal, investment into local and regional consultative planning, Nunavut will continue to be 'our [Inuit] land'.
