Sierra Planning and Management was part of a team (led by The Tourism Company) that was retained by Nunavut Tunngavik Inc (NTI) to assist the community of Arviat in developing a community-based cultural and wildlife tourism program utilizing funds from a Conservation Areas land claim agreement. The planning initiative began in 2010. In 2014, the program was awarded the Tourism for Tomorrow Community Award by the World Travel & Tourism Council.
