The Hudson Bay Consortium
Chisasibi, Nov 2016 - The Inaugural East Hudson Bay/James Bay Regional Roundtable

Description

The inaugural East Hudson Bay/James Bay Regional Roundtable meeting was held in Chisasibi, Nov. 7th-9th, 2016 with a goal of bringing together Inuit and Cree communities and stakeholders to share knowledge and coordinate on priorities for marine stewardship, ongoing and planned research, protected areas planning and communications.

This eastern roundtable is intended to parallel existing regional efforts on the western side of Hudson Bay, with a focus on the overlapping Nunavut, Nunavik, and Eeyou Marine Regions in east Hudson Bay/ James Bay and Mushkegowuk region of west James Bay. The East Hudson Bay/James Bay Regional Roundtable is intended to be an ongoing forum to foster communications, collaboration, and environmental stewardship among jurisdictions, and to discuss local priorities as a part of a step-wise regional approach to forming a Hudson Bay Consortium. The November 2016 meeting in Chisasibi was specifically intended to kick-start regional planning and consultation on priorities and a shared vision for environmental stewardship through a Hudson Bay Consortium, in advance of a Hudson Bay Summit that will bring together west and eastern groups to formally create the Hudson Bay Consortium.
