Memoranda of Understanding (MOU)

Jamie Kneen Communications and Outreach Coordinator responsible for: strategic research, social media, and public engagement; our Africa program, environmental assessment, and uranium mining.

In 1997 the Innu Nation, the Labrador Inuit Association and the provincial and federal governments entered into a MOU with respect to Voisey's Bay Nickel Mine. The purpose of the MOU was to expand the definition of "environment" beyond the definition given by the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, in order to force the company to consider the social, economic, recreational, cultural, spiritual and aesthetic conditions and factors that influence the life of humans and communities.
