Residents were invited to have their say on the development of a 2019-2023 Sustainable Livelihoods Action Plan.
This plan is intended to help prioritize resources and capacity to support sustainable livelihoods across the NWT at local, regional and territorial levels, based on the needs, values and priorities of Northerners.
The GNWT heard from residents about challenges, needs, opportunities and priorities related to country foods, traditional economies, land-based learning and traditional knowledge.
