Nutrient and contaminant status in the wetlands of the Slave River Delta
Principal Investigator: Doig, Lorne
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: Through this research the team will answer the following questions: 1. From the outer Slave River Delta (SRD) to the apex of the SRD, what is the current status of nutrients and contaminants in SRD wetland ecosystems? 2. How do trace elements (e.g., mercury) move through SRD wetland food webs? 3. How does water source affect the availability of nutrients and trace metals in SRD wetlands? Wet...


Improving the transfer of agricultural knowledge and technology in northern Canada through a technology innovation systems (TIS) approach
Principal Investigator: Seguin, Rose
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The objectives of this research is to develop a holistic framework that identifies the challenges to northern agricultural development from an environmental, technical and sociopolitical standpoint. This study will target the following research questions: 1.Which agricultural production systems are most commonly used in northern Canada? 2.What are the primary factors affecting the diffusion rate...


Community Partnership to Create a Comprehensive Approach to Family Violence in the NWT
Principal Investigator: Moffitt, Pertice M
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The objectives of this research are to engage community partners in co-creation of best practices to prevent family violence, to share findings of a scoping review on best practices to prevent /end family violence, and to hear priorities from these implications from youth and elders in the communities. Demographic data (age, ethnicity, gender and exposure to violence) will be collected to desc...


Reclamation Research and Closure Plan for Pine Point
Principal Investigator: Robinson, Cindy
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: In accordance with the Mackenzie Valley Land and Water Board (MVWLB) Guidelines, the overarching closure goal for former mine sites is to return the site and affected areas to viable, and wherever practicable, self-sustaining ecosystems that are compatible with a healthy environment and with human activities. To meet this closure goal, companies must demonstrate that a site is physically stable, c...


Understanding the Interactions between Wildfire Disturbance, Landscape Hydrology and Post-Fire Recovery in Boreal-Taiga Ecosystems
Principal Investigator: Bourgeau-Chavez, Laura L.
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The overall goal of the research is to improve understanding of the controls and impacts of a changing climate on the vulnerability and resiliency of boreal-taiga ecosystems to wildfire. This is being addressed through field sampling and process-based ecological and hydrological modeling of the 2014-2016 wildfires of southern NWT. To conduct the proposed research, the research team will addres...


Detailed study of the rhyolite dome and surrounding volcanic rocks at Sunset Lake, Slave craton, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: DeWolfe, Michelle
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This research is focused on increasing the understanding of the geological history of the Sunset Lake area through a detailed examination of ancient volcanic rocks exposed in this area. This work will be conducted mostly by hiking on foot. Zodiac boat with 25hp outboard motor or canoe will be used to reach the start of the hike each day. The hikes will be no more than 2 km from the lakeshore. D...


Kennady North Diamond Project
Principal Investigator: Panayi, Damian
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016
Summary: The objective of this project is to document existing environmental conditions, in preparation for future regulatory applications Various environmental studies will be initiated each year, according to budgets and information priorities. Hydrology studies include the measurement of selected lake inflow and outflow and stream profile through field surveys, and installation of data loggers to ...


Where on Earth is fire-derived carbon stored?
Principal Investigator: Abiven, Samuel
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The objective is to measure the age and stock of organic carbon derived from wildfires (fire-derived carbon) in the Mackenzie River region, and examine long- and short-term processes controlling the size and distribution of fire-derived carbon stocks in soils. The research team will measure fire-derived carbon stocks in soils and determine its age (radiocarbon dating) at four different location...


Improving colorectal cancer screening in northern Canada using participatory simulation modelling
Principal Investigator: Kuziemsky, Craig
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This project aims to employ an evidence-based simulation modelling approach to estimate the endoscopy resources required to support a Fecal Immunohistochemical Testing (FIT)-based territorial screening program in the NWT and propose effective solutions to meet those requirements that are patient-centred, culturally competent and feasible within a rural and remote health system. To populate the ...
