Mandate

The purpose of creating the Nunavut Inuit Wildlife Secretariat (NIWS) is to coordinate the responsibilities of the Hunters and Trappers Organizations and the Regional Wildlife Organizations (RWO) in Nunavut utilizing a centralized approach. Although NIWS is looked upon as a potential solution to numerous areas of concern at the local and regional levels; the main operational areas remain as follows:

  1. Administration of RWO Finances and relevant accounting requirements.
  2. HTO core funding disbursement in accordance with contributions agreements.
  3. RWO meetings, minutes, resolutions and applicable follow-ups.
  4. Provide management training and/or support to HTO Managers and their Boards.
  5. Act as liaison between HTO/RWO and other organizations such as NWMB, NTI, GN, DFO, DOE, etc.
