Bill 10 - #NWT Heritage Fund Act

Bill 10 - NWT Heritage Fund Act

On Friday, May 20 Doug Ritchie on behalf of Ecology North made a presentation to the Legislative Assembly's Standing Committee on Government Operations.   Bill 10, if passed, will establish the NWT Heritage Fund Act.    A heritage fund, if properly set up, is an important step towards sustainability.  Please find attached Doug's speaking notes.  To obtain a copy of the bill, click on http://www.assembly.gov.nt.ca/_live/pages/wpPages/housebills16-6.aspx.   To obtain a copy of the discussion paper, http://www.fin.gov.nt.ca/heritage-fund/index.htm.  If you have concerns about the bill, please contact your MLA and the Minister of Finance.
