2022 Virtual MVRMA Workshop Series

The Resource Co-management Workshops are hosted by the Land and Water Boards of the Mackenzie Valley, the Mackenzie Valley Review Board, the Government of the Northwest Territories, and the Government of Canada. Given the ongoing COVID-19 circumstances, a series of four virtual half-day workshops were held rather than the typical several-day long in-person workshop once per year. The topics of the virtual workshops were based on a survey conducted in Fall of 2021. This year's workshops focus on:

  • The Co-Management System and Ongoing Initiatives (March 30 and 31)
  • Closure and Reclamation (June 8 and 9)
  • Engagement and Consultation (Sept. 28 and 29)
  • Climate Change (Dec. 15 and 16)

2008 EIA Practitioners' Workshop

Theme: "Close the Loop" - In 2008 we will close the loop by improving the integration of the EIA process into the overall resource management system. Key note speakers, plenary sessions, and working groups will explore how EIA can inform monitoring, enforcement, and follow up, and how these processesthemselves can shape EIA. Discussions will centre on the EIA process' place in the integrated resource management system.
