Northwest Territories


Led by Alison Blay-Palmer, Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo.

Our work in the NWT focuses on community well-being at the intersection of access to country food, traditional livelihoods, climate change and development pressures.

Our research collaborations are with the Ka’a’gee Tu First Nation; in the Sahtu region in Deline; and Yellowknife, where we work with Ecology North. 
The projects include facilitating knowledge sharing between elders and youth, planting gardens and recycling initiatives. The FLEdGE work builds on the partnership between Wilfrid Laurier University and the Government of the NWT.
