Food Security, Social and Environmental Justice and Resilience in the Western Canadian Arctic, using Participatory Video Method
Principal Investigator: Gauthier, Maeva
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018
Summary: The goal is to document resilience and analyse perceptions related to food security and environmental change working with a group of youth in Tuktoyaktuk. The Principal Investigator (PI) will ask: 1) What are the perceptions from the community about notable environmental change (such as presence of plastics/microplastics in their environment and shoreline erosion) and how do they see this affect...


Understanding changes in aquatic ecosystem health and water quality in the Fort Good Hope – Ramparts Area
Principal Investigator: Gurney, Kirsty E.
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017
Summary: The project aims to build community partnerships, identify field sites, and develop and implement sampling protocols for long term, community-based, monitoring of wetland ecosystems near Fort Good Hope (FGH). Whereas some wetlands in the study area have either already been, or are likely to be, impacted by a wide range of industrial activities, including development of oil and gas and associat...


Community-Based Water Quality Monitoring in the Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Somers, Gila L
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: Water quality monitoring equipment has been deployed at over 42 sites across the NWT to address community concerns. Community members were trained to use the following equipment: •YSI sondes: sit in the water and measure basic water quality parameters every 2 hours for up to 3 months. Analysis undertaken at ENR. •Grab water samples: measure basic parameters, nutrients, physicals, major ions,...


Metals levels in large bodied fishes near impacted lakes near Yellowknife, NWT
Principal Investigator: Somers, Gila L
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2017 2016
Summary: The objectives of this project are to collect fish tissue samples from species of subsistence importance to: 1) establish a long-term community monitoring program for contaminants in fish; and, 2) to monitor potential spatial and temporal trends in metal concentrations (including mercury) in fish tissues within the Yellowknife region. The data acquired will be added to existing and concurrently co...


Sustainable Water Governance and Indigenous Law Project
Principal Investigator: Bakker, Karen
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2017
Summary: The goal is to enhance effective, equitable Indigenous co-governance of water resources through pursuing five objectives: 1)Critically conceptualize the potential for reciprocal coordination of, and complementarity between, evolving common ("Western") and Indigenous water law and governance frameworks; 2)Develop innovative methods for co-researching Indigenous Water Governance, based on collabor...


Community-based long-term monitoring of the Peel River near Fort McPherson
Principal Investigator: Moore, Jonathan
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2017
Summary: The objective of this research is to establish a community-based monitoring program in the Peel River watershed, based in Fort McPherson. Previous research has shown that multiple whitefish ecotypes (non-anadromous, semi-anadromous and anadromous, utilize the Peel River as spawning habitat, but it is unclear how much each ecotype contributes to harvester catches. As different ecotypes occupy d...


Darnley Bay Seal Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Insley, Stephen J
Licensed Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014
Summary: The goal of this project is to design and maintain a long-term, locally-based, monitoring program focused on ringed seals (Pusa hispida) and bearded seals (Erignathus barbatus) in the Darnley Bay, Sachs Harbour and Ulukhaktok areas of the Inuvialuit Settlement Region, NT. To accomplish the objectives, the research team have designed a program to work with the local communities of Paulatuk, Sac...


Understanding Community Based Monitoring Exceedances Through Site Assessments
Principal Investigator: McGeer, Jim
Licensed Year(s): 2016
Summary: The objectives of this project are to apply short term sublethal exposures to contaminants of concern with locally collected small bodied fish to establish measures of the relative bioavailability and effect in the Slave River. This information will then be applied to the Community Based Monitoring (CBM) program data to assess exceedances in a more comprehensive manner. Small fish (for exampl...


The Bio- Magnification of Mercury within Fish Species of the Deh Cho and Their Varying Levels Among Lakes
Principal Investigator: Swanson, Heidi
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to: 1) determine why fish mercury levels vary among lakes in the Dehcho region; 2) identify best predictors of fish mercury levels; and, 3) determine which fish have the lowest levels of mercury and highest levels of micro-nutrients and fatty acids. The methods for this project include two parts, first is the collection of food web data from each lake...


A Multi-scale Assessment of Cumulative Impacts in the Northern Mackenzie Basin
Principal Investigator: Lantz, Trevor C.
Licensed Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012
Summary: Objective 1: To use satellite imagery (Landsat, QuickBird, InSAR, etc.) to document the rate and extent of landscape change (slumps, subsidence, vegetation change, etc.) in the northern Mackenzie Basin. To quantify landscape disturbances and vegetation regeneration patterns since 1985 the research team will obtain Landsat satellite images that will provide reflectance measurements covering a 1...
