Project Description:
The Junior Canadian Rangers (JCR) are a structured youth program, led by the Canadian Ranger (CR) patrols found in communities across Canada. Each year, JCRs are brought together from multiple patrols for a week of Enhanced Training Sessions. These sessions are based on the Three Circles of Learning, and are designed to impart traditional skills, life skills and Ranger skills to the JCRs. These sessions impart a broader range of skills in a shorter time to the JCRs than routine patrol level training can accomplish, while also exposing youth to situations outside their communities. Travel during the ETS will be on foot, ATV or small boats. The ETS will include up to 49 JCRs, and 15 support staff. JCRs plan to set up a day camp on the shoreline of Clyde River Bay for a period of a maximum 6 days, Aug 2-7, 2018. There will be no overnight stay on the land. The camp will be visited by up to sixty four (64) personnel. While on the land, activities will be monitored to ensure they leave no trace.

Environmental Impacts
1. Fishing and hunting were identified to have potential impact on the wild life, although it is considered to be minimal. 2. Fuels consumed during this activity will be handled and transferred at all times using drip pans. Spill kits will be available to all personnel, in case of a spill. Drip trays will be placed under the vehicles when parked, as per DND policy. Spill kits will be in vehicles and available to all personnel in case of fuel leak. Fueling will take place at civilian station in Clyde River. No re-fueling will take place in or near the camp site. All garbage will be collected, bagged and disposed at the community's facilities. Wildlife will be actively avoided, and area will be kept clean to avoid attracting wildlife.
