The Qikiqtaaluk Wildlife Board (QWB) is comprised of the Chairman from each community Hunters and Trappers Organization (HTO) within the Qikiqtaaluk region; the Chairman of the QWB is elected independently from the HTOs and serves 4 year terms. The QWB has four main obligations as outlined under the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement:

  • The allocation and enforcement of regional basic needs levels and adjusted basic needs levels among HTOs in the region;
  • The assignment to any person or body other than an HTO, with or without valuable consideration and conditions, of any portion of regional basic needs levels, and;
