The Mary River Project Annual Project Review Forum – Pond Inlet
Iqaluit, Nunavut, April 11, 2023 – The Qikiqtani Inuit Association (QIA) and Baffinland Iron Mines Corp. (Baffinland) will be hosting the Mary River Project Annual Project Review Forum in Pond Inlet on May 9, 10 and 11, 2023 at the Community Hall. This event is a negotiated benefit in the Inuit Impact Benefit Agreement (IIBA).
The Annual Project Review Forum is an opportunity to discuss project-related issues from the Mary River Project on the five impacted communities. It is a venue for community representatives to provide comments to QIA and Baffinland on environmental impacts, mitigation and monitoring plans, and to provide recommendations for overall project improvement.
The QIA Community Directors and selected Elders and Youth from the five impacted communities of Pond Inlet, Arctic Bay, Clyde River, Sanirajak and Igloolik will be delegates at this meeting. Residents of Pond Inlet are welcome to come and listen to the meeting. IIBA Implementation staff from both QIA and Baffinland will be in attendance to make presentations and received feedback.
Once the Annual Project Review Forum is concluded, QIA and Baffinland will compile comments and recommendations into a report for public information. This will be available in Summer of 2023 and available for view on our website at www.qia.ca
