Our priority at this time is the health and safety of the Aurora College/Aurora Research Institute community, as well as the larger NWT and research communities. In response to the global pandemic of COVID-19, the Western Arctic (WARC), North Slave (NSRC) and South Slave (SSRC) Research Centres are currently closed. A limited amount of WARC research support and logistical services for outside researchers are available at this time.
For the past two decades Stephanie has worked for Indigenous peoples’ organizations across the NWT on Treaty negotiations and Treaty implementation.
