The Canada-Nunavut Geoscience Office (CNGO) was established in 1999. It is a partnership between the Department of Economic Development and Transportation of the Government of Nunavut (GN-EDT), Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) and Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada (CIRNAC). Nunavut Tunngavik Incorporated (NTI) is an ex-officio member of the CNGO Management Board that provides operational oversight for 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 responsible resource exploration and development, responsible infrastructure development, and geoscience education, training and awareness.
CNGO publications and data can be downloaded from this site. The CNGO publishes results from its work annually in its Summary of Activities volume and releases results in a range of other publications including the Geoscience Data Series that accompanies the Summary of Activities volume.
