The Inuvialuit Final Agreement, which is now part of the Canadian Constitution, sets out the terms of the contract between the Committee for Original Peoples’ Entitlement, representing the Inuvialuit of the Inuvialuit Settlement Region, and the Government of Canada, representing all citizens of Canada.

As outlined in that Agreement, the Fisheries Joint Management Committee was established to provide advice to the Inuvialuit and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans on fishery management and related issues within the Inuvialuit Settlement Region. The Fisheries Joint Management Committee works closely with government agencies, renewable resource user groups, and resource councils and committees established under the Agreement, as well as with other land claim groups on a variety of activities and programs.

The purpose of this site is to provide readily accessible and current information on the operations of the FJMC.
