The Boards are responsible for issuing water licences to community governments as required by the Waters Act. However, the responsibility of ensuring and monitoring compliance is shared with the various departments of the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT). In May 2016, the Boards requested collaboration with the GNWT to improve water licence (WL) compliancy and the effectiveness of the current licencing process. 

The Forum was established to enable representatives from the regulatory and environmental assessment boards based in Nunavut, the Northwest Territories and the Yukon to share best practices, explore common challenges, and discuss potential solutions.

The Mackenzie Valley Land and Water Board is pleased to welcome three new staff members to the team:

Kierney Leach has joined our team as a Regulatory Officer. Kierney has experience in the consulting field and brings with her an Honours Bachelor of Science degree and a Master’s Degree in Environmental Engineering. 

Erica Janes has joined our team as a Regulatory Officer. She brings a wealth of experience in environmental consulting and public education fields, and holds a degree in Biology and Environmental Studies. 

The Land and Water Boards of Mackenzie Valley have developed the attached Draft Guideline for Geographic Information System (GIS) Submission Standard for public comment. The draft Guideline describes the Boards’ expectations for GIS associated submissions including project location description, maps, GIS data, and metadata.

The Land and Water Boards would like to thank everyone who participated in the MVRMA Workshop in January. We are happy to announce that both the presentations and the summary report are now available. Check them out in the links below:
