2017-2018 NWT Youth Water Stewardship Opportunities Calendar. During development of the Water Strategy, water partners emphasized the importance of involving young people in water stewardship. Youth are the future leaders of our territory. Opportunities for youth to learn about water stewardship and participate in water stewardship activities create informed leaders and decision-makers of tomorrow. This calendar lists opportunities for young people to explore water stewardship activities and programming in the NWT. Each month highlights different ways for youth to get involved! More detailed information about each program is available at the back of the calendar. For a print copy or high resolution file, please contact nwtwaterstrategy@gov.nt.ca .

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.

Description: 

There is limited knowledge about the quality, quantity and location of groundwater near NWT borders in the Mackenzie River Basin. To understand gaps in knowledge, a report was completed to describe what is known about groundwater resources, uses and monitoring, along with potential impacts to groundwater. The report will support development of Groundwater Learning Plans. Development of these plans is a commitment in NWT transboundary water management agreements with Alberta and British Columbia for areas where there are moderate levels of existing or proposed development and/or areas considered vulnerable.
