Mission Statement

To effectively facilitate the transfer of lands and ensuing governance responsibilities as per Article 14 of the Nunavut Land Claim Agreement through enhanced training and support mechanisms at the community level. The PLAN will act as the premier professional land & planning administration body in Nunavut.

History

Each community in Nunavut (25 in total) has a “Community Land Administrator” whom is responsible for all activities pertaining to community planning and land administration. PLAN is composed of these communities.
