The purpose of UFA Board and Committee Gathering is to give organizations involved in land use planning, environmental assessment, land and water regulation and resource management (including cultural resources) an opportunity to learn from one another and to coordinate activities.



Have a look at our preliminary agenda. We will provide a printed copy of the final agenda and the delegates' package to attendees when they check-in. Topics include:

  • the origin of the UFA boards
  • a similar gathering of Boards and Committees in NWT
  • the history, accomplishments, challenges, and current work of each agency
  • interpreting land claims: issues and resolutions
  • appointments
  • orientation and training of new members
  • policies and procedures
  • contributions to Reconciliation
  • the future of similar gatherings

There will also be time for informal discussions, food, and quite possibly live music.
