Have your say

The survey closed on Friday, September 15.

The GNWT knows that it is important to create a carbon pricing system that addresses the unique challenges faced by NWT residents, business and industry. We are committed to getting our approach right and will not make decisions until we’ve heard what Northerners have to say. We hope you will contribute to this process by completing this online survey.

We know that issues around the environment and economy matter to all Northerners, and we want you to tell us how you think the GNWT should approach carbon pricing in the NWT.

The federal government has said it will implement the federal carbon pricing backstop sometime in 2018, which means that the GNWT has a tight timeline to engage with Northerners and then develop, draft and pass legislation for a “made-in-the-NWT” carbon pricing system.
