Project Title:
Nahanni National Park Reserve: Finding an Equitable Solution

Research Topic/Project description:
Established in 1976, the boundaries of Nahanni National Park Reserve protect only a small section of the South Nahanni River watershed. While many have sought to expand the park over the last decade, among them Parks Canada and the Deh Cho First Nation, the issue has become contentious given the presence of known mineral deposits and the potential for additional mineral finds in the area. The project seeks to study the proposed expansion of the Nahanni National Park Reserve and explore the merits of a hypothetical amendment to Canada's National Parks Act, which would permit metal mining within national park boundaries. The project will explore in depth the social, legal, and environmental ramifications of allowing metal mining operations to continue within the extended boundaries of Nahanni National Park Reserve.
