SLUPB Adoption of 5-Year Review Amendment of the Sahtu Land Use Plan and Submission for Approval

Dear Planning Partners,

We are pleased to announce that the Sahtu Land Use Planning Board (SLUPB) formally adopted the 5-Year Review Amendment Application by a motion on April 30, 2020, in compliance with subsection 48(1) of the MVRMA. The SLUPB submitted the Amendment Application, as adopted, to the SSI, the GNWT, and CIRNAC for their review and approval on May 1, 2020, as per subsections 48 (2) and 43 (1) to (4) of the MVRMA. 

The Adopted Amendment Application consists of two volumes where: Volume 1 is the main body of the SLUP, including Appendices 1 and 2; and Volume 2 is “Appendix 3: GIS Protocols, Methodology, and Physical Limits Zone Descriptions”. As Appendix 3 is a part of the SLUP, the Board is seeking approval on both volumes. It is the Board’s intent that these volumes will be kept separate in the final approved plan. 

The Adopted Amendment Application and submission letter to the Parties are available on the Board’s website at: 5-Year SLUP Review.  All amendment-related correspondence and meeting materials are also available on our public registry.

We thank all who contributed to the development of this Amendment Application. Together, we are improving the SahtuLand Use Plan. If you have any questions about the Amendment Application, please contact the SLUPB’s Project Manager, Heidi Wiebe at or (867) 447-0961.
