The community of Inukjuak Nunavik aims to create a 24,000 ha lndigenous Protected and Conserved Area for Arqvilliit (Ottawa Islands). Arqvilliit has always been occupied by Nunavik Inuit since time immemorial. This project supported by the Governement of Canada through the Canada Nature Fund will protect habitats for species at risk including the polar bear, a culturally significant species for the Inuit. The protection of Arqvilliit is an important step towards reconciliation with Nunavik Inuit by recognizing and respecting their way of life and the animals on which they rely for their health, culture and livelihood.

Arqvilliit is a very important area for polar bears and has always been known by Nunavik Inuit as a place where bears mate, den and feed.

Arqvilliit is also an important nesting place for eider ducks.

Arqvilliit and the surrounding waters are home to many animals including waterfowl, ptarmigan, seals, walrus and mussels.

It is important to protect this habitat to maintain the critical balance of each animal and have a thriving ecosystem.

The Government of Canada is working with Nunavik Inuit to create an Indigenous Protected and Conserved Area (IPCA) for Arqvilliit.

The creation of the Arqvilliit IPCA is an important step towards reconciliation with Nunavik Inuit by supporting and respecting their way of life and the animals on which they rely for their health, culture and livelihood.
