The Nunavut Water Board (NWB) seeks to protect, manage, and regulate freshwaters in Nunavut by incorporating Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit and scientific knowledge in decision-making. The NWB is based in the hamlet of Gjoa Haven, Nunavut located in the Kitikmeot Region, 1,056 km northeast of Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. It is the only settlement on King William Island.

The Board mandate is to provide for the conservation and utilization of waters in Nunavut – except in national parks – in a manner that will provide the optimum benefits for the residents of Nunavut in particular, and Canadians in general. The board is required, in the exercising of that licensing power, to consider any detrimental effects of the potential use of waters or a deposit of waste on other water users and to hold, where appropriate, public hearings. It has responsibilities and powers over the use, management, and regulation of inland water in Nunavut.


Under the direction of the Director Technical Services, the Technical Advisor is responsible to provide technical support for all internal and external technical and scientific services required by the Nunavut Water Board.
