The Nunavut Surface Rights Tribunal (“NSRT” or “Tribunal”) is established pursuant to the Nunavut Waters and Nunavut Surface Rights Tribunal Act and the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement, as adopted by the Nunavut Land Claim Act. The NSRT is established for the purpose of providing an independent mechanism for the resolution of disputes arising from:
- Access to surface land in Nunavut;

The Nunavut Waters and Nunavut Surface Rights Tribunal Act provides that the NSRT is an Institution of Public Government but is not an agent of the Government of Canada.
