Northern Projects Management Office (NPMO)
NPMO was established by CanNor in 2010 to improve the efficiency of how federal government departments participate in territorial environmental assessment and regulatory review processes for proposed major resource development and infrastructure projects in the territories. NPMO has offices in Nunavut, Northwest Territories, and Yukon.
NPMO's key priorities include:
- Coordinating federal departmental participation during environmental assessment processes for major projects in the territories,
- Convening and providing issues management support to Indigenous organizations, industry proponents and other stakeholders during environmental assessment and regulatory review processes, and
- Maintaining the Crown consultation record for major projects in the territories.
