There is a significant amount of Inuit-Owned Land in Nunavut. However, boundaries are rarely marked. Visitors are responsible for learning the restrictions that apply to the specific areas they wish to enter. Any operations of a private, commercial, or public nature occurring on Inuit-Owned Land requires authorization by the regional Inuit organization and/or Hamlet office (please see Hamlet contact information under the community contact section).
Please contact the Inuit Land Administration Office for permit requirements in each area.
