The Nunatsiavut Government (NG) receives numerous requests each year from universities, and other researchers to conduct research in Nunatsiavut. Any research conducted in Nunatsiavut should happen only with the full knowledge and participation of the NG, and first and foremost, the Labrador Inuit community. We ask any researcher who has a request to conduct research in Nunatsiavut to contact the Inuit Research Advisor (IRA), Carla Pamak, before proceeding. A research proposal is required for every research project that takes place in Nunatsiavut. A review process specific to each proposal will be initiated and reviewed by the Nunatsiavut Research Advisory Committee.
