Enforcing Harvest Regulation Compliance

Conservation Officers work hard to monitor and ensure compliance with the Acts and Regulations that are in place to ensure sustainable harvesting by:

  • Monitoring all harvests that occur in each community;
  • Patrolling kill sites to conduct investigations when illegal activities are suspected;
  • Investigating all defense kills to ensure compliance;
  • Collecting samples and data for research from all bears harvested or found dead;
  • Ensuring tags are issued for each bear harvested; and,
  • Issuing export permits for each bear leaving Nunavut or the Northwest Territories.
