We are also grateful to the following agencies for their financial support: the Northern Ecosystem Initiative, Environment Canada; the Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation Directorate, Natural Resources Canada; the Ouranos Consortium; ArcticNet; the Nasivvik Centre at Laval University; the Ministere des Transports du Quebec; and the Kativik Environmental Advisory Committee
. The project would not have been possible without the in-kind contribution of the Renewable Resources Department and the Parks Section of the KRG.
The James Bay Advisory Committee on the Environment (JBACE) and the Kativik Environmental Advisory Committee (KEAC) were created to facilitate Cree and Inuit input into all aspects of decision making about the management of development in the area referred to in the Agreement (Table 1).
However, the James Bay Advisory Committee on the Environment (JBACE) and the Kativik Environmental Advisory Committee (KEAC) created under the Agreement have as part of their mandate the responsibility to evaluate legislation, policies, and regulations in the context of the principles laid out in sections 22 and 23.
