Land Management Boards

What are NWT Public Boards?

The public boards play an important role from providing advice to government to managing public programs. In order for the public boards to fulfill their mandate, they must be made up of members who are qualified for the position and are committed to undertake the work of the board.

What role does the GNWT have in Public Boards?

The Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) is responsible for making nominations or appointments to a variety of public committees, boards and councils (public boards). These public boards have been created through legislation, intergovernmental agreements, or government policy. Appointments are made by Cabinet, the Commissioner in Executive Council or the responsible Minister(s).

The GNWT invites expressions of interest from suitably qualified individuals interested in being appointed to a public board.
