Implementation of the New Deal for NWT Community Governments

Hon. Michael McLeod
Friday, June 06, 2008
Statement to the Legislative Assembly
——————————————————————————–

It is my pleasure to share with my colleagues some of the positive results that have been realized to date, in the first year after the formal implementation of the New Deal for NWT Community Governments.

Implemented April 1, 2007, the New Deal is designed to provide communities with increased authority and decision-making on capital projects. Designed in partnership between the Department of Municipal and Community Affairs and community governments, the initiative reflects a huge shift in our government’s approach to planning, designing and implementing community public infrastructure, in response to a long-standing desire of many communities. With the increased authority comes increased responsibility, and everyone involved recognizes that community governments must be supported if they are to be able to successfully manage these new responsibilities.

Press Release – Terrestrial Ecosystem Management Framework 5 June 2008

Press Release
June 5th, 2008

CEMA Announces Plan to Protect the Ecosystem in the Oil Sand Region.

Edmonton, Alberta – The Cumulative Environmental Management Association (CEMA) announces an Ecosystem Management Framework for the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo. The Plan is CEMA’s recommended approach to managing the cumulative effects of development and resource use on ecosystems and landscapes in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo. The Plan protects the environment while enabling oil sands development and maintaining social and cultural needs of Albertans. Woodland Caribou, Black Bear, Native Fish, Moose, Old Growth Birds, Fisher, and Old Forests are expected to decline with continued development in the region, in the absence of management intervention. Modeling results demonstrate that strategies are available to manage impacts and this Plan provides strong recommendations on ways to prevent a decline. CEMA has forwarded the Ecosystem Management Framework to the Government of Alberta and encourages regulators to move forward immediately with key elements of the Framework towards full implementation by 2011.
