The Nunavut Impact Review Board (NIRB) was established through the Nunavut Agreement (1993) to be an independent agency responsible for providing Government with determinations regarding the potential impacts of proposed development projects, whether or not they should be permitted, and if so, under what terms and conditions. The NIRB is Nunavut's impact assessment authority, responsible for all of the land and marine areas of the Nunavut Settlement Area, approximately 1/5 of Canada.
We play an important role in shaping the future of Nunavut, Canada’s youngest and largest territory. The NIRB provides its employees with significant opportunities for job satisfaction, personal growth and career advancement. The NIRB offers competitive salaries as well as relocation assistance, a significant Northern Living Allowance, Vacation Travel Assistance and other benefits.
