Found 10 records similar to Mineral Tenure in Nunavut - Mining Leases
The dataset contains the extents of mineral claims of Nunavut. A mineral claim is an area of Crown Land that is staked out by an individual or Mineral Exploration Company that holds a valid Prospectors license. This grants the individual or mineral exploration company the mineral rights to the staked out piece of land as provided for under the Nunavut Mining Regulations, SOR/214-69. If the holder of a mineral claim wishes to produce minerals from the claim, or to hold it for more than ten years, the holder must apply for a lease of the claim.
The dataset contains polygon areas that represent the locations of coal exploration licences granted in Nunavut.

The Oil and Gas Rights dataset contains the digital boundaries for existing exploration licences, significant discovery licences, production licences, former permits, former leases and the Norman Wells Proven Area. These boundaries are available for download on the Northern Petroleum Resources Website at http://www.aadnc-aandc.gc.ca/eng/1100100036087.
The Oil and Gas Rights dataset is Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) primary source for northern petroleum titles geographic location on maps.
The Inuit Regions, also known as the Inuit Nunangat, dataset contains the geographical boundaries of the 4 Inuit Regions in Canada: Inuvialuit, Nunavut, Nunavik and Nunatsiavut. The boundaries, land only, have been drawn as per information defined in each land claim agreement. The marine boundaries of the 4 Inuit Regions will soon be available. The Inuit Regions (Inuit Nunangat) geographical boundaries are approximate and should be used for illustration purposes only.
The Modern treaties (formerly known as the Post-1975 treaties) dataset contains geographic boundaries as well as basic attribute data representing signed agreements that were negotiated between Indigenous groups, the Government of Canada, and provincial and territorial governments after 1975. These boundaries represent the areas of Canada where Indigenous land rights and title have not been addressed by treaty or through other legal means. These boundaries represent the final result of a negotiated First Nation’s claimed area. These boundaries are usually not surveyed but help to delineate the geographic extent of the rights of Indigenous beneficiaries defined within the agreement.
The Targeted Investments in First Nations Community Infrastructure dataset depicts infrastructure projects on reserves across Canada that are funded through Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) and Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada (CIRNAC) programs. It contains data related to project location, category, description and status.
The dataset allows the Department to pinpoint and share information about individual infrastructure projects in First Nation communities, in a proactive and transparent manner, to:
• Showcase where and how investments are carried out in First Nation communities
• Demonstrate the Government’s commitment to improve the socio-economic conditions of Indigenous peoples and their communities.

The Indigenous agreements dataset contains geographic boundaries as well as basic attribute data representing arrangements between the Government of Canada, provinces and territories, and Indigenous organizations and communities. These arrangements address Indigenous and northern affairs, such as education, economic development, child and family services, health, and housing, that have not been addressed by treaties or through other means. However, this dataset only contains the Indigenous agreements that have a geographic boundary. The Indigenous agreements dataset includes:
1) Self-government agreements which represents the Indigenous groups that govern their internal affairs and assume greater responsibility and control over the decision making that affects their communities.
The Historic treaties (formerly known as the Pre-1975 treaties) dataset contains geographic boundaries as well as basic attribute data representing signed treaties that were negotiated between Indigenous peoples and the Crown between 1725 and 1929. However, the Treaties of Peace and Neutrality, signed between 1701 and 1760, are not represented in this dataset because they do not have geographic boundaries that can be represented on a map. Apart from the Peace and Friendship Treaties, these boundaries represent the historic treaties signed after 1763, which provided large areas of First Nations land, to the Crown (transferring their Aboriginal title to the Crown) in exchange for reserve lands and other benefits. The Government of Canada recognizes 70 historic treaties in Canada signed between 1701 and 1923.
The Inuit Communities geographic location dataset contains the geographic location of Inuit Communities in Canada as points, as well as data attributes specific to each community.
This dataset is Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada (CIRNAC) and Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) official source for Inuit Communities geographic location on maps.
