Environmental and social assessment

Section 23 of the James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement (JBNQA) and Section II of the Environment Quality Act (EQA) govern the environmental assessment regime in Nunavik. This regime is different from the one in force in southern Quebec, and its application is based on a distinct set of principles, as laid out in sub-section 23.2.4 of the JBNQA.
