Website Promotes Informed Input into GNWT Mineral Resources Act Consultations
A coalition of NWT and national advocacy groups have created a website to promote informed input into the territorial government consultation on a new Mineral Resources Act.
The responsibleminingnwt.ca website was created as a result of a review of the proposed Act by the groups. It contains resources including mining practices and revenue options research, pertinent media coverage and video resources.
The website resource will provide informed best practices to build a world class mineral strategy for the NWT that will: reflect current requirements to respect the inherent, constitutional and international rights of Indigenous Peoples with co-management authority over land and resources; maximize revenue generation; ensure ample infrastructure and legacy funds are built into a mining strategy; and provide regulations for companies to operate on the highest levels of safety and environmental accountability. In their input to the consultation, the groups saw the need to provide information and resources for those wanting to participate, but lacking expert knowledge of issues and policy alternatives.
The website contains a link to the Government of the Northwest Territories survey and to the consultation discussion paper. Written submission can also be contributed to the consultations.
December 1 is the deadline for submissions to the Mineral Resources Act consultations.
