Containing one of Canada’s newest National Parks, as well as a number of other protected areas, Nunatsiavut is a rare region that should be experienced by all.

The Torngat Mountains National Park is an area of 9,700 square kilometres in the northernmost region of Nunatsiavut. It is Canada’s newest National Park, created as a result of the Labrador Inuit Land Claims Agreement. To learn more about the park, please visit the Parks Canada website.

The Department of Lands and Natural Resources is responsible for implementing the Impacts and Benefits Agreement (IBA) for the Torngat Mountains National Park. This IBA provides for Inuit participation in the management of the park, research and ecosystem management, as well as training, employment, and business opportunities.

The Department has also been actively involved on the Steering Committee for the creation of a National Park in the Mealy Mountains region of Labrador.
