Quttinirpaaq National Park of Canada

Registration and Orientation

Registration and orientation is mandatory. All visitors must register, pay a backcountry excursion fee and participate in an orientation prior to their trip at the Tanquary Fiord Warden Station. Nunavut fishing licenses are not valid in Quttinirpaaq National Park, nor in any other national parks. Allow one hour for registration and orientation. Ask your charter company to contact the park wardens at Tanquary with your estimated arrival time.

The registration and orientation is designed to:

  • ensure park wardens have the information necessary to carry out a search and rescue operation.
  • provide up-to-date information on conditions and hazards to the visitor.
  • encourage and facilitate low-impact camping and travel practices.
  • confirm that visitors have adequate provisions and equipment.
  • Do not forget to de-register upon completion of your trip!
