Planning in the EMR is a collaborative process, this involves working with Cree coastal communities, residents and stakeholders, and governments to understand local use, local priorities and a future vision for a land use plan in the region.

Development of the land use plan also involves working with neighboring planning regimes such as the Eeyou Planning Commission (Cree Nation Government) and the Nunavik Marine Region Planning Commission (Nunavik Institution of Public Government), to ensure that adjacent land use plans, policies, and processes work to complement each other where possible.
In February 2015, the EMRPC hosted a planning workshop to kick off the EMR planning process. The workshop provided training on land use planning, offered by ECO Canada’s BEAHR (Building Environmental Aboriginal Human Resources) program. Click here for the summary of the workshop.
The Commission’s plan to develop a land use plan for the EMR is guided by a seven (7) stage framework.
