Nunavut

The federal government through Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC) has overarching responsibility for management of water resources in Nunavut as described on the department's Water Management and Water Resources pages.

The Nunavut Water Board has responsibilities for regulation, use and management of inland waters in Nunavut and is the agency that is primarily responsible for water allocation. The Board has no enforcement powers; enforcement and compliance are the responsibility of AANDC. A description of the licensing process is provided on the Board's Licence Application page.
