Protected Areas Legislation - Public Engagement


What was this engagement about?

The Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) is developing new protected areas legislation to be used in the establishment of permanent protected areas in the Northwest Territories (NWT).

How could I participate?

NWT residents were invited to read the plain language summary of the key concepts contained within the proposed protected areas legislation and submit comments to:

  • Kelly Stein, Conservation Areas Management Planner, Department of Environment and Natural Resources
  • (867) 767-9233 extension 53073

The deadline to provide feedback was November 2, 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.

How could my input make a difference?

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.

Where can I find related information?

Where can I find results?

Results from the public engagement will be summarized in a What We Heard report and made public once comments have been processed. Check back here for results.
