If you are looking for information or would like to set up an interview, please contact the Executive Director, available at the phone number and email address above.
Due to the quasi-judicial nature of the Regulatory Process of the Land and Water Boards of the Mackenzie Valley, there are certain limitations as to what the Board Chair and Executive Director are able to speak about. Board decisions, submissions made by other parties, or any other evidence must speak for themselves.
The primary source of information for all matters currently before the Board is the SLWB Public Registry. The Registry contains all the evidence the Board has on a particular file. We encourage you to contact the developer of a project that is under review to obtain details about their project. Land and Water Board staff can only provide a cursory overview of the project. The developer will be best able to describe its own project.
Media requests are referred to designated Executive Directors, who may provide remarks on procedural issues. It may be acceptable in certain situations for written responses to be provided by the Executive Director(s) to media requests.
