In 2019, as a first step of the Imappivut Marine Plan Initiative, the Nunatsiavut Government approached Parks Canada with the proposal to create an Indigenous Protected Area under the Canada National Marine Conservation Areas Act. The Nunatsiavut Government and Parks Canada worked together to complete an assessment to determine the feasibility of establishing an Inuit Protected Area/national marine conservation area adjacent to Torngat Mountains National Park under the Canada National Marine Conservation Areas Act, and if feasible under what conditions.

Located in the Labrador Shelf Marine Region, the Torngat Area of Interest is a vast Inuit homeland, and its coastal and marine areas are the source of Inuit cultural, social, spiritual, ecological, and economic wellbeing.
