UINR's partnerships with other organizations are an important part of what we do and the successes we have achieved.

Our lead role in organizations such as Pitu'paq and the Bras d'Or Lakes Collaborative Environmental Planning Initiative have resulted in important accomplishments in achieving our environmental and management goals.

Through our partnerships with Parks Canada, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Cape Breton University, Georgia Pacific, Port Hawkesbury Paper, the province of Nova Scotia, Cape Breton municipalities, and a host of other government departments and organizations, UINR has ensured that Mi'kmaq perspective and knowledge have been an integral part of many projects.
