September Board Meeting Update
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak in Yellowknife, the September Board meeting had to be changed to a virtual quorum meeting to ensure safety, while addressing a few items on the agenda that were urgent. Joseph Judas chaired via Zoom from Wekweètì, Eddie Erasmus joined from Yellowknife, and Isabelle Duclos via Zoom. Business attended to at this meeting included: Review and Approval of Bathurst Caribou Management Plan, Review and Approval of Boreal Caribou Offset Plan, Tłı̨chǫ Highway updates, Review & Approval of Application for Outfitters Licence for Aylmer Lake Lodge, Review and Approval of Black Bear Research and Monitoring 2021-22, Review & Approval of Financial Statement as of 31 March 2021, and approval of a leave of absence for Eddie Erasmus while he runs for Tłı̨chǫ Grand Chief. The next meeting has been scheduled for December 1-2, 2021, which will include all items that were not addressed at this short meeting. Stay tuned for updates on those items and more in our next newsletter update in January.
