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 were invited to read the plain language summary of the key concepts contained within the proposed Forest Act and submit comments to ENR.
The deadline to provide comment is closed.
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 were taken into consideration during the drafting of the proposed legislation.
Results from the public engagement have been summarized in a What We Heard report.
