Public Service Announcement – Have your say on the State of the Environment Report

Public Service Announcement

Yellowknife — June 23, 2022

The Northwest Territories State of the Environment Report 2022 (NWT SOE Report) provides information about topics relevant to the environment, organized to clearly explain what has occurred over time and what changes are expected in the future. It also compares the NWT environment to other parts of Canada and the world. The goal of this report is to help residents understand the NWT’s changing environment and enable them to make informed decisions about their impact on the environment.

The NWT SOE Report is published every four years. Each report provides up to date information about a series of indicators, chosen to communicate key information about the NWT environment in a way that is relevant to residents.

In accordance with the Environmental Rights Act, we are offering the public an opportunity to ask questions and comment on the Report.

The public is invited to submit questions and comments until September 15, 2022, by emailing
