Summary Information:
The Clyde River Protocol was established to govern the working relationship between the Government of Nunavut and Nunavut Tunngavik Incorporated (NTI). The two parties signed the agreement following the creation of Nunavut in 1999.

The Protocol recognises the special role of NTI as the primary Inuit organisation in Nunavut, with a mandate to speak for the Inuit of Nunavut regarding their rights under the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement. It agrees to mutual recognition of the interests of NTI and the Nunavut Government in acting for the interests of all Nunavut citizens.
Accordingly, the signatories of the Protocol agree to structure and pursue their working relationships in a cooperative and constructive manner, acknowledging their overlapping roles and interests.

The Clyde River Protocol also provides guidance on matters of priority, dealings with governments and other agencies, meetings and information sharing.
