Nunavut Coalition Corporation

The Northern Coalition was established in 1996 to protect existing shrimp allocations for its member companies. This non –profit organization is comprised of six community based groups representing in excess of 20,000 aboriginal Inuit and Metis people located in remote northern communities. Together these 6 companies are adjacent to the full geographic extent of Shrimp fishing Areas 1-6 from Grise Fjord, Elsmere Island, Northern Quebec and coastal Labrador. All members of the Northern Coalition are offshore license holders who played a significant role in the development of the Northern shrimp fishery since its inception in the early 80s and can demonstrate dependency and historical attachment to this fishery.
