Mr. Speaker, I’d like to welcome my colleagues back for the final sitting of the 18th Legislative Assembly.

Throughout our term, our decisions have been guided by the Mandate we adopted unanimously at the beginning of this Assembly and revised in October 2017.

Good morning and thank you for being here for the NWT Economic Partners' Collaboration Symposium.
