Canada | Federal election puts hold on completion of Inuit benefits agreement for shipwreck sites

CAMBRIDGE BAY—Due to the timing of the upcoming federal election, the Kitikmeot Inuit Association says it has not been able to conclude negotiations of the Inuit Impact and Benefit Agreement for the national historic site of the wrecks of HMS Erebus and HMS Terror near Gjoa Haven.

“We are close to finalizing the agreement, however, federal departments are not able to make government commitments during an election process in case there is a change of party in power,” said Fred Pedersen of the KIA’s communications department.
