Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) has been tasked, under the Marine Conservation Targets (MCT) initiative announced in Budget 2016, with evaluating the petroleum resource potential for areas identified for protection as part of the Government of Canada¿s commitment to conserve 10% of its marine areas by 2020. As part of this initiative, Parks Canada Agency (PCA) requested that NRCan conduct qualitative assessments of western Hudson Bay and Repulse Bay, within which a National Marine Conservation Area (NMCA) may be evaluated. Also, Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) requested that NRCan conduct a qualitative petroleum resource assessment for an area around Southampton Island within which a Marine Protected Area (MPA) may be evaluated. The primary objective of this report is to provide a qualitative petroleum resource assessment for the greater Hudson Bay region, including Foxe Channel and Repulse Bay. The Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) interpretation is visually represented by a qualitative petroleum potential map in this report.
