  • Land Protection Must Move Forward - By Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society – NWT Chapter | CPAWS Northwest Territories
    East Arm of Great Slave Lake is also proposed to be protected as a national park Impact of Devolution But protection of these areas is now essentially on hold as a direct result of devolution Prior to devolution the GNWT effectively withdrew from the PAS process as it reviewed its pending land management responsibilities and authorities It appears that the GNWT did not want to leave large blocks of land under federal jurisdiction at the same time that it was gaining increased land and resource management control The GNWT indicated that it would prefer to develop and use northern legislative tools to protect and conserve lands in the NWT but has not been able to offer the communities or regions any legislation that would achieve their goals or match the protection provided under federal legislation GNWT Delays Devolution is now a reality and communities are expecting decisions to be made regarding the lands that they have been faithfully and diligently moving forward under the PAS process The GNWT cannot delay the process any longer as land protection will provide a number of communities with the comfort and certainty they desire to move forward on other land and resource use initiatives including development initiatives outside of these protected areas The GNWT has to step forward and engage fully with communities and regions to resolve and finalize the commitments it and the federal government have made since 1999 through the PAS process Resolution may include the development of new forms of territorial land protection legislation the continued use of federal legislation or a combination of both Those options can only be considered through full engagement between the GNWT and affected Aboriginal governments and communities with federal involvement where and as required and with the support of the non government organizations that have

  • Disappointing boundary for new Nááts’ihch’oh National Park in Nahanni Headwaters | CPAWS Northwest Territories
    protect the Nahanni watershed nor does it take into account the overwhelming public support for protecting the entire Nahanni headwaters expressed during the public consultations on the proposed park More work is still needed to protect the Nahanni The tabling of this Bill follows an announcement by the Prime Minister in August 2012 about the creation of the new park which provoked serious concerns from conservation organizations and local communities about the inadequacies of the park boundary Unfortunately only very minor changes were subsequently made to the boundary and they do not address the scientific evidence of what s needed Nááts ihch oh is an area of great ecological and cultural significance It includes critical habitat for two woodland caribou herds as well as grizzly bears Dall s sheep and mountain goats The legislation tabled yesterday would create a national park that leaves the most important habitat for these species outside the park This is really a missed opportunity to adequately protect one of Canada s most precious World Heritage Sites said Kris Brekke Executive Director of CPAWS Northwest Territories Chapter Since the federal government missed the boat protection of important missing pieces will now need to be secured through other mechanisms If resource development in Canada s North is to be truly sustainable it must include the proper protection of important ecological and cultural lands such as Nááts ihch oh these areas are necessary to safeguarding our land water and wildlife and the way of life they sustain notes Brekke CPAWS has worked for more than four decades to protect the Nahanni starting with securing the original Nahanni National Park Reserve in the early 1970s In 2009 we publicly celebrated the Dehcho First Nations and Government of Canada s action to massively expand Nahanni National Park Reserve And for
