Project Description: The Mackenzie Gas Project has sub-contracted the Fort Simpson Metis to collect and document Traditional Knowledge during the project. Local knowledge and technical/scientific research, in combination with a synthesis of existing technical information, is being used to develop a suitable knowledge base for planning, assessment of impacts and development of environmental protection plans. The Fort Simpson Metis will determine content to be studied and provide overall guidance for the study. Data collected will be stored by AMEC Americas Ltd. and Imperial Oil Resources. Regular updates and a non-technical repot will be provided to relevant community organizations.
The study will be conducted from January 20 to December 31, 2006 in parts of Fort Simpson Metis traditional lands susceptible to potential effects from the Mackenzie Gas Project. It is anticipated that these lands will be within the vicinity of Fort Simpson.
