Retrospective on Research Licensing in the NWT

The Retrospective on Research Licensing in the NWT are reports exploring research trends in the NWT. The first was a 10 year retrspective and looks at licensing information from 2000 to 2009.

This year, as a part of the 50th Anniversary celebration for research in the Inuvik Region, a 40 year retrospective was prepared which looks at licensing information from 1974 to 2013, the years for which licensing information is availible.

There is Federal, Territorial and Aboriginal Land Claim/Treaty legislation under which multiple research regulatory agencies administer permitting responsibilities for research within the Northwest Territories. The retrospective reports both took permitting information for the NWT to examine areas of overlap or to analyze any trends in the licensing data.

Regions and Maps of the NWT

The process of consultation within each of the various regions of the Northwest Territories differs due to the different socio-political infrastructures that are in place. Refer to below table for communities in each region of the NWT or to our Licensing Summary Tables. Each of the six regions is further broken down under its own section. You are strongly advised to begin the consultation process at least three months before beginning your research. The online application will provide direction for the consultation process. You are advised to allow three months for the processing of your application.
