The PWPC's websiteThe Peel Watershed Planning Commission (PWPC) has submitted their Recommended Plan to the Yukon Government, the First Nation governments of Na-Cho Nyak Dun, Tr'ondëk Hwëch'in, and Vuntut Gwitchin for approval. The Commission is currently not active; however, these governments, together with NWT?s Gwich?in Tribal Council, are consulting with communities around the watershed. They have posted a schedule of these consultation events, as well as an on-line forum. The timeline below...
