The Canada-Nunavut Geoscience Office (CNGO) was established in 1999. It is a partnership between the Government of Nunavut (GN), Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) and Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC). Nunavut Tunngavik Incorporated (NTI) is an ex-officio member of the office.

The CNGO consists of expertise in Precambrian, Paleozoic and Quaternary geology, GIS and cartography and online data dissemination. The mandate of the office is to provide Nunavut with accessible geoscience information and expertise to support: 1) responsible resource exploration and development, 2) responsible infrastructure development, 3) geoscience capacity building, 4) geoscience education and training and 5) geoscience awareness and outreach.

CNGO publications and data can be downloaded from this site. Results from CNGO work are published annually in its Summary of Activities volume and released in a range of other publication series.
