Please Note: The Partnership Collective Agreement between the Union and Baffinland recognizes and respects that Baffinland is party to an Inuit Impact and Benefit Agreement (IIBA) that covers its mining operations.

The IIBA provides that Inuit must have the opportunity for equatable and meaningful participation in Baffinland’s work at the mine.  Therefore, Baffinland’s hiring priority will be given to beneficiaries under the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement (NLCA) from Pond Inlet, Igloolik, Clyde River, Hall Beach and Arctic Bay and Iqaluit, followed by residents from other Baffin region communities and then to all other NLCA beneficiaries.
