Submitting a project to the EMRIRB

Before a project proposal is submitted for screening, proponents must:

  • Ensure that you have all information required to submit, such as project maps, information on locations, translations of your project summary in Cree and French, project activities, timelines, and whether your project requires a Government (federal or territorial) permit/license/authorization.

  • Register for an account on the Public Registry found at

  • Follow the prompts on the Public Registry to submit a 'pre-screening questionnaire' to the Eeyou Marine Region Planning Commission (EMRPC). The questionnaire should only take 5-10 minutes to complete, and the EMRPC will inform you if your project is subject to screening. 

  • Public participation in the impact assessment process should occur as early as possible and at each step of the process. For this reason, it is strongly recommended that proponents invite Cree input right at the beginning of their project planning.
