This plan was produced as part of the implementation of the Inuvialuit Final Agreement. It recommends a strategy to reserve and develop supplies of sand and gravel on Inuvialuit lands in the vicinity of Tuktoyaktuk, N.W.T. Its goals are the reservation of adequate supplies of sand and gravel for the community's future needs, and the siting and management of these reserves so as to minimize the environmental and social impacts of their development. The plan was developed with members of the Tuktoyaktuk Land Use Planning Working Group and other representatives of the community. It is based on existing scientific and community information, and will be revised at least every 5 years. The plan assesses 12 potential sources of granular material in the Tuktoyaktuk area: Sources 155, 168 and 160/161, which are of primary interest as sources of community supply; Sources 162 181 and 183 in the vicinity of the community and Sources 163, 164, 165, 167, 170 and 177, all of which have been proposed as sources of large-scale supply. ...

This document is a framework for granular resource management planning specific to the Inuvialuit Land Administration (ILA). The following chapters include a review of relevant recent activities, a description of a granular management planning model and data contained within, a description of a typical granular resource management plan and a description of integrated planning and some of the types of considerations and consultations required of this process. Funding and other support for this project came from the Inuvialuit Final Agreement (IFA) Implementation Program and the Northern Granular Resource Program (NGRP). Work done to gather information for this framework included meetings with ILA staff, the Joint Secretariat (JS), and other government offices. The focus was to identify important data sets, potential stakeholders, and to determine possible mapping system solutions that would allow the functionality required to plan and manage granular resources. The ILA has a mandate to administer Inuvialuit lands with respect to a broad range of land uses. In terms of granular material, the ILA is to ensure these resources are available and will remain so in the future as stated in the Inuvialuit Final Agreement (IFA). This task will involve matching sand and gravel demand with supply while considering the possibility of changing demands due to commercial developments, infrastructure projects, etc. Management will be faced with the fact that granular deposits are limited in occurrence and essentially non-renewable. Also, in order to administer to all land users, a means of reconciling conflicting uses equitably and within a forum that allows public (stakeholder) input from the start is critical. The need for tools such as a user-friendly mapping system that enables planners and managers to visualize data sets and compare these data themes in a geographic context is a typical land administration requirement. Part of this project was to help with implementing a usable desktop mapping system within the ILA. The ILA is interested in developing a granular management plan as soon as possible. It is apparent that the need exists for such a plan and that this initial exercise will be helpful in further planning efforts. (Au)

The Northern Affairs Program (NAP) of the federal Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development (DIAND) has overall responsibility for the control and administration of a wide range of natural resources in the North. This includes the responsibility to ensure that resource development benefits all Canadians while reducing damage to the environment and enhancing the lifestyles of all northern residents. Granular resources are necessary for most development projects in the North. Ownership of land in the North generally includes ownership of granular resources: soil, sand, gravel and certain types of rock that are required for land development and are accessible from the land surface in pit and quarry operations. Generally, through the Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development Act, the federal government has an overall responsibility for resources in the North, as well as residual responsibility for remaining federal lands, identified in the Territorial Lands Act. In the Inuvialuit Settlement Region, there are four categories of land ownership: Crown lands (federal lands administered by DIAND, also referred to as territorial lands in the Territorial Lands Act); Commissioner's lands (federal lands administered by the territorial government); Inuvialuit-owned or Private lands (administered by the Inuvialuit Land Administration); and Municipal lands (administered by the territorial government or the municipality). The laws and regulations affecting the taking and use of granular resources, and the process for obtaining authorizations, vary across the North, and depend also on land ownership. It is imperative that the needs of a wide array of stakeholders and interest groups be considered in order to properly develop and manage these important resources. Consequently, DIAND has attempted to compile, verify and update information on all stakeholders involved in granular resources. What follows is a comprehensive directory of those involved with any or all aspects of the identification, exploration, regulation, development, management and use of granular resources within the Inuvialuit Settlement Region. The Directory includes three parts. The first part includes key definitions and a brief overview of the laws, regulations and application process applicable to the various land ownership categories, including key regulatory contacts. The second part consists of listings of stakeholders grouped into four main categories and several sub-categories. At the beginning of the listing is a brief explanation of the categories and their sub-categories. The main categories are as follows: Regulators; Development and Use; Services; and Reference. Each stakeholder listing includes (as available) name, position title and organization, mailing and e-mail addresses, telephone and fax numbers and several keywords that describe the stakeholder's role or interest in granular resources. The third part contains three indexes of the stakeholders included in the directory and the page on which their full entry is included. The first index lists organizations that are grouped alphabetically under subject categories that generally correspond to those in the second part of the directory. The second is an alphabetical listing of all organizations in the directory. The final index is an alphabetical listing of all persons in the directory. (Au)

This report presents a preliminary feasibility study for adapting DIAND NWT's Land Information Management System (LIMS) for granular resource and land management operations within the Inuvialuit Land Administration (ILA). The first part of this study deals with research into past DIAND initiatives for the ILA. This task includes the reviewing of reports, granular forecast models, GIS applications, and conducting interviews with the Scientific Authority and ILA Land Administrators. An on-site visit to ILA offices in Tuktoyaktuk was conducted to review business procedures, information holdings, information technology infrastructure, and requirements for implementation of a granular resource forecast and land management system. Notes from this visit can be found in Appendix "E". In addition, ILA Land Administrators attended a GIS training and LIMS overview workshop. At the conclusion, they provided valuable feedback that contributed to this study. Section 6.0 (Research) summarises information compiled from this study. The second part of this study provides a discussion of LIMS capabilities and a detailed comparison and analysis to ILA business functions. Three potential scenarios for integration are presented; each one supported by a discussion of advantages, disadvantages, and assumptions. The results of this task are presented in Section 7.0 (Evaluation and Analysis). This report concludes by providing short-term recommendations that are intended to prepare ILA for future implementation of a granular resource forecast system (refer to Section 8.0). ... Granular Resource Management and Forecasting: ILA feels that granular resource management will become relevant if existing or potential projects go ahead. These projects include Husky Lakes, the proposed Inuvik/Tuktoyaktuk Road, and the impact of the proposed road on Husky Lakes, Paulatuk area, Darnley Bay Project. Granular Forecasts are done in 5-year cycles. The current forecast cycle is nearing its end. A new forecast should be done within the next year. There are ongoing arguments for lease payments and land transfers with MACA. There is a gravel agreement with MACA whereby gravel from sources outside Hamlets and for community purposes can be paid by MACA and refunded by the Federal Government. Previous granular forecast reports were based on expectations of significant demands for oil and gas related activity. The proposed Inuvik/Tuktoyaktuk road project could take another 5 years to get off the ground. GNWT Transportation has mapped granular sources for the road. Existing granular activity with IPC includes the Sandy Hills site along the Mackenzie River. There is a piggyback agreement with IPC to supply gravel to Inuvik and Tuktoyaktuk. The existing arrangement includes stockpile agreements and permits with IPC. The agreement involves additional royalties but no additional fees. Grubens (contractor) must perform reclamation of the site as part of the agreement. The agreement has provisions for penalties if proper reclamation is not performed. Activity within the ISR has declined dramatically since the 1980's. The ILA dealt with issuing over 300 rights in the 1980's. Since that time, only 50 or 60 rights have been issued. ILA maintains paper-based records since 1984/85. The existing sources of granular resource information are community knowledge, traditional knowledge, existing reports and forecasts, and known granular sources from other projects. (Au)

This report documents the prototype web site designed to provide Internet information sharing and consultation capabilities to assist in the development of a regional granular resources management plan for the Inuvialuit Settlement Region. This work follows on the recommendation of a feasibility study completed in March of 2002 by Cal Data Ltd. The study found that an Internet based system for the map-based display and interaction with granular resource and related planning data for the Inuvialuit Settlement Region would be feasible. The study examined the various software products and their capabilities and recommended the use of MapGuide. It reported that this product provided the most functionality and quickest route to site deployment. Under the current contract the 'Granular Resource Management' prototype web site was constructed. The site was hosted during development and testing on Cal Data Ltd. hardware and utilized Cal Data Ltd. software. At the end of the contract period INAC purchased the latest version of MapGuide software. Information included in the site was for the most part provided by Bob Gowan of DIAND, Ottawa. This information included a variety of general information, detailed imagery and specific granular resource data. Several sets of imagery were obtained at no cost from the GEOGRATIS web site of NRCAN. In addition, information from two other MapGuide servers was incorporated in the site as distributed data sources. Also a procedure was developed to allow remote data providers to upload information to the site and retain complete control of their data on the site. The prototype site is designed to highlight using the available map information, the possible uses of an Internet based system. In addition to the main map a series of side panels describe and demonstrate some of these functions. One of the more powerful functions demonstrated in this manner is the Mark Up capability where the user may add their own map layers and data in confidence and distribute the resulting hybrid map to their desired audience. The hope is that potential users and contributors will have the opportunity to investigate the site and provide feedback so that specific tools and systems can be put in place to allow the site to become an integral part of the Granular Resource Management Plan for the Inuvialuit Settlement Region. ... The objective of this contract is to construct a prototype web site that demonstrates the capabilities of a web-based mapping system to information sharing and consultation regarding the development of a regional granular resources management plan for the Inuvialuit Settlement Region.
