Description: 

The Government of the Northwest Territories, in partnership with the Government
of Canada, is studying the extent of contamination in the environment from
former mining operations around Yellowknife.
A human health risk assessment is being done to help understand the potential
effects of legacy contamination on people who have cabins, and hunt, fish and do
recreational activities, such as hiking and camping, around Yellowknife.
An analysis of available data found limited information on fish from inland lakes
around Yellowknife. A voluntary community fish sampling program will help to
address this data gap.

 

Le gouvernement des Territoires du Nord-Ouest, en collaboration avec le gouvernement
du Canada, réalise des études pour déterminer l’étendue de la contamination laissée
par les activités minières à proximité de Yellowknife.
Une évaluation des risques pour la santé humaine est en cours pour permettre de
comprendre les effets potentiels de la contamination existante sur les personnes qui
possèdent une cabane ou un chalet, chassent, pêchent et pratiquent des activités
récréatives, comme la randonnée et le camping, autour de Yellowknife.
Après une analyse des données disponibles, nous avons constaté que les
renseignements sur les poissons des lacs à proximité de Yellowknife étaient limités
(principalement à l’ouest et au nord-ouest de l’ancienne mine, sauf le Grand lac des
Esclaves). Un programme communautaire et volontaire de collecte d’échantillons
de poissons nous aidera à remédier à cette lacune.

Description: 

Mobile Core Bathurst Caribou Management Zone Regulations – UPDATED May 10, 2018. This Zone (in yellow) was implemented in order to let hunters know where harvesting is prohibited and assist in the protection and conservation of the Bathurst Caribou herd. The GNWT does not make caribou locations or numbers publicly available due to significant conservation concerns.

This is the final map of the harvest season.  The next map will be posted in the fall of 2018.

Description: 

A human health risk assessment (HHRA) is currently being carried out for areas that are offsite but near to the former Giant Mine, primarily to the west and northwest of the mine site. This study will look at whether people are being exposed to chemicals at levels of concern. Canada North Environmental Services Ltd. (CanNorth) is conducting this assessment on behalf of the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) and Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC). CanNorth gave this presentation to the public on May 10, 2018 to update residents on the HHRA and collect additional input into the study.
