The Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) is making amendments to and combining the existing Forest Management Act and Forest Protection Act to create the new Forest Act.
NWT residents are invited to read the plain language summary of the key concepts contained within the proposed Forest Act and submit comments to:
- Janice Ziemann, Compliance Forester, Department of Environment and Natural Resources
- (867) 872-7706
The deadline to provide comment is December 14, 2018.
The public will be invited to comment once again on the draft legislation through a review process carried out by Standing Committee at a future date.
The new legislation will incorporate feedback brought forward by Indigenous governments and organizations, stakeholders and the public. Comments received though this engagement period will be taken into consideration during the ongoing drafting of the proposed legislation.
Results from the public engagement will be summarized in a What We Heard report and made public once the engagement deadline has passed and comments have been processed. Check back here following the engagement period.
