Nunatsiavut Government: Moose licences available for Beneficiaries
September 14, 2022
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.
