Research Regulation in the NWT

What some visiting researchers may see as extra layers of bureaucracy is seen by NWT residents and regulators as a layer of protection for the people and environment of the territory. Through the research permitting processes, NWT residents have a chance to know what will happen on their lands, voice their opinions, and have some guarantee that they will receive the results from fieldwork and research done in their region.
