Working Groups

In 2008, the Mackenzie Valley Land and Water Board (including the regional panels) established  the Standard Procedures and Consistency Working Groups to develop consistent policy, procedures and guidelines that take into account regional differences.  The Working Groups are comprised of staff from the Gwich’in, Wek’eezhii, Sahtu, and Mackenzie Valley Land and Water Boards, and operate under Terms of Reference.

Under Section 106 of the Mackenzie Valley Resource Management Act (MVRMA), the MVLWB has approved a number of the policies, guidelines, and standards that were developed by the Working Groups. The Gwich’in, Wek’eezhii, Sahtu, and Mackenzie Valley Land and Water Boards currently implement all approved Working Group products.
