Project Description:
The MS SPITSBERGEN is a small expedition passenger cruise ship carrying an estimated 180 passengers plus 68 crew (including nine expedition staff). Plans are to operate one 15-day voyage, including two days in Nunavut, operating from St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada to Kangerlussuaq, Greenland. The itinerary is as follows: 24 Jul 2017 St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada 25 Jul At Sea 26 Jul L'Anse aux Meadows, Newfoundland & Labrador (Canada) 27 Jul Rigolet, Labrador (Canada) 28 Jul Nain, Newfoundland & Labrador (Canada) 29 Jul Saglet, Labrador (Canada) 30 Jul At Sea 31 Jul Lower Savage Islands, Nunavut (Canada) 01 Aug Butterfly Bay / Monumental Island, Nunavut (Canada) - OR - Monumental Island / Lady Franklin Island, Nunavut (Canada) 02 Aug At Sea 03 Aug Qeqertarsuaq (Greenland) / Qasigiannguit (Greenland) 04 Aug Ilulissat (Greenland) 05 Aug Itilleq (Greenland) 06 Aug Kangerlussuaq (Greenland) A Canadian Arctic-experienced Expedition Leader will lead the voyage. A distinguished team of lecturers and naturalists is aboard to assist by providing an in-depth educational program through an on-baord series of presentations and small group guidance while ashore during small group landings and in the auxiliary boat. Kayak excursions supervised by a kayak instructor will be offered in select locations if conditions permit. Details are provided in the Company's Project Description/Environmental Impact Statement prepared for the NPC and the NIRB. Authorizations will be obtained in advance. Copies of permits, licenses or other authorizations will be carried on board and be provided upon request. Operations have been planned to be fully self-sufficient, with activities managed by experienced personnel and within the search and rescue capability of the Company, including for medical evacuation. A multi-year Environmental Impact Assessment, compiled by an outside consultant, has been compiled to evaluate environmental aspects of the planned operations of the vessel to document operational procedures and ensure compliance with requirements under international and First Nation, Federal and Territoral Acts and regulations. Provided that minimization and mitigation measures are adhered to, it is concluded that the proposed activity will have less than a minor or transitory environmental impact and that the activity should be authorized/permitted to proceed.

 Hi Jorn, Can you please verify what permits or licenses you require (if any) for this voyage? Have you made this voyage before and has the Nunavut Impact Review Board (NIRB) screened this activity (do you have a NIRB file number if so?)? Kind regards, Alana Vigna

2017-05-10 17:40:53, from: Jorn Henriksen
 Hi Alana, Victoria Wheatlley (Jorn's consultant) here. I am very sorry but I do not believe he saw your message (10 May). We have not yet followed up with the NIRB but have a shell set up with the NIRB (File #125110). We have not submitted documentation to the NIRB as we have been instructed by Jaida Ohokannoak of the NIRB to first file with the NPC and let the NPC issue their Conformity Determination. Then, once that has been issued, then proceed with the NIRB filing if the project is referred on. I am at the ready to submit documentation to the NIRB and have the NIRB Part 1 form translated and also have their non-technical project summary translated too. Please if you can inform me how you wish me to proceed. Best would be to copy me in via email at Victoria@expeditionvoyage.com. Again apologies that this message got overlooked. With Jorn being new to the process that may have been what happened. As for permits and licenses, they are only needing to obtain their corporate registrations with Government Nunavut apart from their Wildlife Observation License with Environment Canada. They are NOT applying for an Archaeology Permit with Government Nunavut (Dept. of Culture & Heritage) or permits with CWS or Parks Canada. It is only the one License with EC. I can email you their NIRB Part 1 form if you wish to have a look. Standing by to assist! Warm regards, Victoria
