The communities of Canada's Northwest Territories and its territorial government are struggling with rapid economic, social, political, and technological change in a region which is sparsely populated, largely Aboriginal, and very poor. Each community is committed to improving the condition of the population while also making progress towards economic self-sufficiency and political autonomy. The perspectives and cultural backgrounds of the four principal populations--Inuit, Dene, Metis, and Euro-Canadian--and the views of the legislature and its professional bureaucracy must be harmonized and a common language developed in order to produce appropriate public policy and maximize the use of scarce financial resources....

All northerners have a responsibility to care for the land and water. In the Northwest Territories, a number of organizations carry out this shared responsibility, called 'environmental stewardship'. These include Aboriginal governments and resource management boards, regulatory boards, the territorial and federal governments, environmental non-government organizations and industry. The Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development (DIAND) is one of the partners in environmental stewardship in the NWT. This booklet outlines a community-based, made-in-the-North model for environmental stewardship, the specific environmental management tasks DIAND carries out to fulfill its role in this shared responsibility,...

The report contains many recommendations to improve NWT’s actions on biodiversity over the next ten years. Some of the most important recommendations for each core theme are described here. Species at Risk: Continue to work, primarily through the co-management system, towards management and recovery planning, involving all NWT groups interested in species at risk in the NWT. Protected Areas: Improve coordination among conservation, land use planning and development agencies to increase efficient use of resources and reduce the burden on community capacity. Sustainable Forests: Continue to update forest legislation and harmonize with all applicable legislation,including land claim legislation, to develop better tools...

Introduction - 1.1 Preamble: The Mackenzie Valley Resource Management Act (MVRMA or Act) delivers commitments from land claim agreements. It does this, in part, by establishing boards that give Aboriginal peoples a greater role in making decisions about environmental protection and resource management in the Mackenzie Valley. One of these organizations is the Mackenzie Valley Environmental Impact Review Board (Review Board). The Review Board has produced these Guidelines for Environmental Impact Assessment in the Mackenzie Valley (referred to here as the Guidelines), according to s.120 of the MVRMA. Environmental impact assessment (EIA) is a process which examines the potential impacts of proposed developments to...

1.1 Thesis question . Is the Mackenzie Valley Resource Management Act (MVRMA) consistent with past trends in the development of environmental assessment in Canada or is it strictly an anomaly intended to address regional issues? 1.2 Purpose of the thesis . By documenting the origins and development of environmental assessment in Canada, the objective will be to identify the elements that have formed the foundation of current environmental assessment laws and practice. Through an analysis of legislative development and changes in process, the thesis will seek to identify common threads in the development of environmental assessment. This analysis will be contrasted with the MVRMA to determine whether it is consistent...
