The Nunatsiavut Government has 14 moose licences available to be drawn and harvested by Beneficiaries of the Labrador Inuit Land Claims Agreement for the 2022-2023 hunting season. This is a reduction in the number of licences issued in the 2021-2022 hunting season, as a recent aerial survey and a traditional knowledge study indicates the moose population in the region is in decline. Only 17 of 25 licences issued last year were filled.

The 2022-2023 Beneficiary moose licences will be distributed as follows:

Nain, 2 licenses (1 household draw, 1 community freezer) Hopedale, 2 licences (1 household draw, 1 HICG)
Postville, 2 licences (1 household draw, 1 PICG)

Makkovik, 2 licences (1 household draw, 1 MICG) Rigolet, 2 licences (1 household draw, 1 RICG)

Happy Valley-Goose Bay, 2 licences (1 household draw, 1 Inuit Community Corporation)

North West River 2 licence (1 household draw, 1 Inuit Community Corporation)

Household draw Licences will be valid for 14 days. If a licence is not filled within 14 days, a new draw will take place to designate a new hunter. This will continue until all licences are filled.

Interested Beneficiaries must apply at their local Nunatsiavut Government office. There is a limit of one licence per household. Proof of residency, as well as your Nunatsiavut membership card, may be requested.

The 2022-2023 Moose hunting season will open on September 14 and close on March 7, 2023.
