AREVA continues community engagement in Coral Harbour and Baker Lake this week

A small group of AREVA representatives was in Coral Harbour on January 21, 2014 as part of the Kivalliq communities open house tour started in November 2013 with stops in each of the region’s communities.

While in Coral Harbour yesterday, we met with the Mayor and Council and visited three high school classes. We also had the opportunity to meet with the local Hunters and Trappers Organization (HTO) representatives. In the evening we hosted our public open house. At every meeting and during the open house we provided an update on our plans for the Kiggavik project and the environmental assessment process. We were able to answer questions and also gather some feedback from all the people we met. We plan to report on all our 2013/2014 and prior community engagement efforts in the Final Environmental Impact Statement we will release this fall.

We thank Coral Harbour’s Mayor and Council, high school principal, teachers and students, the HTO and all the residents who attended our open house.

Next stop in our Nunavut travels this week – if the weather holds up – is Baker Lake for a meeting with the Hamlet Council.
