What is the Friends of Land Use Planning?
We are a collaboration of individuals that support Indigenous-led Land Use Planning in Canada.
Specifically, in Nunavut, we support Inuit-led land use planning, and we want to see the Nunavut Land Use Plan finally come into force.
A NLUP is a requirement of the Nunavut Agreement, signed in 1993.
We believe that a NLUP can help to protect marine and terrestrial wildlife, habitats, and biodiversity while also providing opportunity for sustainable economic development.
Who are the people involved with FLUP?
- Hilu Tagoona, from Baker Lake, Nunavut
- Paul Crowley and Jakob Gearheard from Iqaluit, Nunavut
