Canada | Inuit, federal governments close to deal to allow development of Franklin expedition NHS

CAMBRIDGE BAY—By April 1 next year, the Inuit impact and benefit agreement for the Terror and Erebus National Historic Site should be signed, and the construction of a visitors centre based around the doomed 1845 Sir John Franklin expedition can then move ahead in Gjoa Haven.

“We are close to finalizing this IIBA and we are very hopeful that we will be in a position to sign an agreement in principle very soon,” Fred Pedersen of the Kitikmeot Inuit Association said on Tuesday, Oct. 16, at the KIA’s annual general meeting, now underway in Cambridge Bay.
