Ukkusiksalik National Park is jointly managed by Inuit and Parks Canada in accordance with the Nunavut Agreement, the Inuit Impact and Benefit Agreement for Ukksiksalik National Park of Canada (IIBA), and the Canada National Parks Act, its associated regulations and policies.

The Joint Park Management Committee (JPMC) is the cooperative management board for the park. The JPMC’s role is to advise Parks Canada, the Minister responsible for National Parks, the Nunavut Wildlife Management Board and other agencies on all matters related to park management.

The creation of the JPMC was provided for in the Nunavut Agreement. The IIBA created the Committee and outlined the details of its structure and governance. Each member of the JPMC has the responsibility to act impartially in the public interest and for the public good.
