The Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) has made regulatory amendments under the Wildlife Act to address issues such as the import of harmful species, the declaration of wild pigs as a pest species, hunter training requirements, and wildlife management and monitoring by industry.
- Read about the new regulations, which are in effect July 1, 2019
The public engagement period is now closed. Public meetings were held across the NWT in:
- Norman Wells
- Fort Smith
- Hay River
- Sachs Harbour
- Fort McPherson
The new regulations incorporate feedback brought forward by Indigenous governments and organizations, stakeholders and the public. Comments received though the public engagement period helped develop and refine the proposed regulatory amendments and WMMP guidelines, which are important for the continued conservation of wildlife in the NWT.
Results from the public engagement have been summarized in a What We Heard report.
