The Government of the Northwest Territories committed to developing a Northwest Territories Mineral Resources Act. In accordance with strategic policy directives and under the mandate of the 18th Legislative Assembly, the Department of Industry Tourism and Investment (ITI) has taken the lead in preparing this legislative project. From August to December 2017, ITI conducted 120 days of public engagement across the NWT guided by a discussion paper organized around nine broad topics. A high-level summary of directions and recommendations received was published in a What We Heard Report in January 2018.

This presentation will provide an overview of this legislative initiative as it is now completing the policy development phase and moving towards receiving direction to begin legislative drafting.
