The NWT Chapter sent in a letter of comment on the Government of the Northwest Territories’ climate change plan for 2019-2023, calling out their inadequate action towards a rapid just transition to 100% renewable energy, adaptation planning, or inclusion. In summary, they said: “In light of the climate threats facing this jurisdiction, we expected an aggressive and innovative Action Plan but this Plan is neither."

The NWT Chapter also participated in the Stakeholder and Public Review for Parks Canada’s Draft Action Plan for Wood Buffalo National Park and are encouraging others to take part before the December 10th deadline as well. You can read their submission here. Wood Buffalo National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage site that is being threatened by cumulative development including the tar sands and Site C.
