NWT residents were invited to read the plain language document summarizing the key concepts contained within the proposed ERA and submit comments to ENR.
The public will be invited to comment once again on the draft legislation through a review process carried out by Standing Committee at a future date.
The new legislation incorporates feedback brought forward by Indigenous governments and organizations, stakeholders and the public. Comments received though the public engagement period were taken into consideration during the drafting of the proposed legislation.
Next Steps from the public engagement have been summarized in a What We Heard report.
