As its name suggests, the Renewable Resources, Environmental and Land Use Planning Department has a wide range of responsibilities. The Department’s activities are divided into five main areas:
- Inuit Hunting, Fishing and Trapping Support Program.
- Park development and operations.
- Wildlife conservation.
- Land use planning.
Funding for Department activities in the areas of parks, land and fresh-water wildlife conservation, and land use planning is received from the Québec government through the Agreement concerning Block Funding for the Kativik Regional Government (Sivunirmut Agreement). Funding for the Inuit Hunting, Fishing and Trapping Support Program, marine wildlife conservation, abandoned mineral exploration site clean-up and other environmental activities, among others, is received through specific agreements with the ministère des Ressources naturelles et de la Faune (natural resources and wildlife), the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Restor-Action Nunavik, the ministère des Affaires municipales, des Régions et de l’Occupation du territoire (municipal affairs, regions and land occupancy), the ministère des Transports du Québec (transportation), and the ministère du Développement durable, de l’Environnement et des Parcs (sustainable development, environment and parks).
