Fish Habitat and Hydrotechnical Assessments along the Proposed Mackenzie Valley Highway
Principal Investigator: Chiperzak, Doug
Licensed Year(s): 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5060. The goal is to collect baseline fish, fish habitat and hydrotechnical data for selected watercourses along the proposed Mackenzie Valley Highway to support engineering design and the regulatory process. Fish habitat will be assessed along 100 m reaches upstream and downstream of each potential watercourse crossing....


Evaluating the impact of cannabis legalization in the Canadian territories.
Principal Investigator: Hobin, Erin P
Licensed Year(s): 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4964. The study has five objectives: 1. To examine prevalence and patterns of non-medical cannabis use, including use among young adults, age of initiation, and levels of dependence; 2. To examine the cannabis retail environment, including the extent to which consumers shift from illicit sources to legal retail sources,...


Impact of climate change on catchment biogeochemistry in plains and shield regions
Principal Investigator: Olefeldt, David
Licensed Year(s): 2021 2019 2018
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4734. The objective of this research is to identify impacts of climate change and permafrost thaw on pond methane emissions, and on water chemistry in streams that drain peatland-rich catchments.

Permafrost monitoring and collection of baseline terrain information in the Mackenzie Valley Corridor, NWT
Principal Investigator: Smith, Sharon S
Licensed Year(s): 2021 2020 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5055. The objectives of this project are: 1) to provide baseline knowledge of permafrost and terrain conditions (specifically ground temperature and active layer thickness) and improve characterization of terrain sensitivity in the Mackenzie Valley; 2) to monitor ground temperature and active layer to detect changes in pe...


Further Examination of the Bio- Magnification of Mercury within Fish Species and watersheds of the Deh Cho and Their Varying Levels Among Lakes
Principal Investigator: Low, Mike
Licensed Year(s): 2021 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4802. The objectives of this research project are: 1) to determine why fish mercury levels vary among lakes in the Dehcho region; 2) to identify best predictors of fish mercury levels; 3) to determine with fish have the lowest levels of mercury and the highest levels of nutrients; and, 4) to collect data on parameters that ...


Understanding A Woman's Journey to give Birth: A Community Engagement Photovoice Project
