Description: 

The Canadian Heritage Rivers System requires ten-year monitoring reports to assess whether designated rivers continue to meet the criteria for designation as a Canadian Heritage River.  

The first ten-year monitoring report for the Tsiigehnjik/Arctic Red River was published in 2005, and covered the period 1993-2003.

The second ten-year monitoring report for Tsiigehnjik covers the period 2005-2014. This assessment builds on the first ten-year report, and is based on the river’s cultural, recreational, renewable resource, biodiversity and intrinsic value to local Indigenous community members.

The NWT-AB Agreement was signed March 18, 2015. This report outlines highlights of the first year of implementation of the agreement.
