NT Government – Have your say: Public engagement on Sustainable Livelihoods and Traditional Knowledge Action Plans
The Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) is inviting Northwest Territories (NWT) residents to have their say on the development of two action plans: an Environment and Natural Resources (ENR) Sustainable Livelihoods Action Plan and a GNWT Traditional Knowledge Action Plan.
The GNWT is looking to hear from residents about challenges, needs, opportunities and priorities related to country foods, traditional economies, land-based learning and traditional knowledge. Residents are encouraged to help us identify potential actions the GNWT can take to support community-driven sustainable livelihoods programs and initiatives.
Public engagement sessions will be held in communities across the NWT from February until April 2019. Currently scheduled sessions include:
- Hay River – February 26, 7-9 p.m. – Recreation Centre
- Inuvik – March 19, 2019, 7-9 p.m. – Midnight Sun Complex
Those who wish to participate in a language other than English are asked to call 867-767-9231, ext. 53041. Information on future community engagement sessions and opportunities will be available online at www.enr.gov.nt.ca.
Any residents who are unable to attend a community meeting but wish to provide input can send comments by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline to submit comments is April 20, 2019.
