SCHEDULE 3(Subsection 1(1) and paragraph 8(1)(c))Nunavut Lands Division

  • Marginal note:North American Datum of 1927

    1 All latitudes and longitudes used in this Schedule refer to the North American Datum of 1927 (NAD27).

  • Marginal note:South of latitude 70°

    • 2 (1) Grid areas, the whole or greater part of which lies south of latitude 70°, are bounded on the east and west sides by successive meridians of longitude of the series 50°00′00″, 50°15′00″, 50°30′00″, which series may be extended as required, and on the north and south sides by geodesics joining the points of intersection of the east and west boundaries with successive parallels of latitude of the series 40°00′00″, 40°10′00″, 40°20′00″, which series may be extended as required.

    • Marginal note:North of latitude 70°

      (2) Grid areas, the whole of which lies north of latitude 70°, are bounded on the east and west sides by successive meridians of longitude of the series 50°00′00″, 50°30′00″, 51°00′00″, which series may be extended as required, and on the north and south sides by geodesics joining the points of intersection of the east and west boundaries with successive parallels of latitude of the series 70°00′00″, 70°10′00″, 70°20′00″, which series may be extended as required.

    • Marginal note:South boundary of grid area north of latitude 70°

      (3) Despite subsection (2), each grid area the northeast corner of which has a latitude of 70°10′00′′ is bounded on its south side by the north boundaries of the two grid areas to its immediate south.

    • Marginal note:Latitude and longitude

      (4) Every grid area is referred to by the latitude and longitude of the northeast corner of that grid area.

  • Marginal note:Sections

    • 3 (1) Every grid area is divided into sections.

    • Marginal note:Meridians

      (2) Each section is bounded on the east and west sides by meridians spaced

      • (a) in the case of a section within a grid area, the whole or greater part of which lies south of latitude 60° or between latitudes 70° and 75°, at intervals of one-tenth of the interval between the east and west boundaries of the grid area;

      • (b) in the case of a section within a grid area, the whole or greater part of which lies between latitudes 60° and 68° or between latitudes 75° and 78°, at intervals of one-eighth of the interval between the east and west boundaries of the grid area; and

      • (c) in the case of a section within a grid area, the whole or greater part of which lies between latitudes 68° and 70° or between latitudes 78° and 85°, at intervals of one-sixth of the interval between the east and west boundaries of the grid area.

    • Marginal note:Section boundaries

      (3) Each section is bounded on the north and south sides by the geodesics joining the points of intersection of the east and west boundaries of the grid area and spaced at intervals of one-tenth of the length of those boundaries.

    • Marginal note:South boundary — southernmost sections

      (4) Despite subsection (3), each section in the southernmost row of sections in each grid the northeast corner of which has a latitude of 70°10′00′′ is bounded on its south side by the south boundary of the grid area.

    • Marginal note:Identification by number

      (5) A section is identified by the number to which it corresponds

      • (a) in the case of a grid area described in paragraph (2)(a)

  • Marginal note:Units

    • 4 (1) Each section is divided into units.

    • Marginal note:East and west boundaries

      (2) Every unit is bounded on the east and west sides by meridians spaced at intervals of one-quarter of the interval between the east and west boundaries of the section.

    • Marginal note:North and south boundaries

      (3) Each unit is bounded on the north and south sides by geodesics joining the points of intersection of the east and west boundaries of the grid area and spaced at intervals of one-fortieth of the length of those boundaries.

    • Marginal note:South boundary — southernmost units

      (4) Despite subsection (3), each unit in the southernmost row of units within a section referred to in subsection 3(4) is bounded on its south side by the south boundary of the section.

    • Marginal note:Identification by letter

      (5) Every unit is identified by the letter to which it corresponds in the following diagram:
