PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
DATE ISSUED: May 14, 2018
EVENT: Launch of QIA’s online Land Use Application Registry
The Qikiqtani Inuit Association (QIA) is launching a new online Land Use Application Registry that will allow applicants to submit all land use permit applications to QIA online.
The new system is a speedier and more efficient application process. With this system clients will not only be able to submit applications online but they will also be able to check the status of their project. All communication and documents associated with a project will be held in a single, easily-accessible location online.
The registry will allow QIA to keep track of applicants visiting or working on Inuit owned lands such as researchers, cruise ships and prospectors. QIA will be able to use this information to notify communities if business is being conducted on their lands and waters.
The online system also includes automatic reminders to clients on reporting deadlines and inspection timings to ensure that essential documents are received on time.
This online process will replace the current paper based system, however, paper-based applications will still be accepted in English and Inuktitut for those who do not have access to the internet.
The new online registration program can be accessed via the QIA website and also at http://qia.strata360.com/app/.
The table on the next page covers all the Licences and leases that QIA offers. The majority fall under the Class One Land Use Licence for short term, seasonal projects on or around Inuit Owned Lands.
