To upgrade AMIK’s ability to consolidate, digitize, map and share traditional and contemporary knowledge about marine life.
The Saint Lawrence seaway is a complex ecosystem sensitive to environmental incidents such as oil spills. Information pertaining to these marine sites, which are very important to the Innu population from socio-economic, environmental and cultural issues points of view, will be gathered and analyzed though the development of a georeferenced database. It will allow for rapid response planning in case of anthropogenic pollution.
The following actions will be implemented in phase 1:
- Training AMIK’s personnel on geographical information systems
- Drafting a protocol for information sharing
- Developing a georeferenced database in the form on an electronic atlas
