The Impact Review Board screens and reviews project proposals to assess their potential impacts


The EMRIRB is the institution with the mandate, competence, and credibility to assess, in close collaboration with Cree communities, governments, and stakeholders, the environmental and social impacts of proposed projects in the Eeyou Marine Region


Public Registry

The Public Registry is a repository of all information related to project proposals in the EMR. Project proponents must register for an account on the EMRIRB Public Registry to submit a project proposal. Interested parties can also search the Public Registry to stay up to date on all EMRIRB Projects.



All project proposals in the EMR are assessed by the EMRIRB though screening to determine if they should be allowed to proceed and whether they require a formal review. The EMRIRB is also responsible for monitoring all accepted projects. For more details on these processes, consult this section.


Public Participation

Public participation is an important element of an open, honest, and balanced impact assessment process. Consult this section to learn more about how you can participate in the assessment process and how your comments help the EMRIRB make its final decisions about proposed projects.
