The development of the MRA and its regulations has been a complex and enormous undertaking.

Led by a GNWT implementation team, the IGC has worked through a series of processes to understand and identify all of the regulations that will be required by the new Act.

The intent, approach and direction for each identified regulation has been developed, evaluated and refined. The IGC work has been guided by: research, analysis, subject-matter experts, best practices from other jurisdictions and engagements with NWT leaders, industry stakeholders and organizations involved and impacted by mining in the NWT as well as self-identifying members of the public.

The overarching intent of the regulations that are now being proposed have been summarized and consolidated in the document: An Overview of Policy Intentions that will inform the drafting of Regulations for the NWT Mineral Resources Act.
