Land use planning in the Eeyou Marine Region aims to protect and promote the existing and future well-being of the people of Eeyou Istchee.
For this, we needed to sit down with people of the coastal Cree communities including representatives of local government, youth, elders, women, tallymen and land users to hear from them:
- what is important to them about the marine area,
- what issues they are facing, and
- what is their vision of the future of the marine region?
These conversations will help define the goals for land use planning in the Eeyou Marine Region and are described in the reports below.
