Media Requests

If you are looking for information or would like to set up an interview, please contact the Executive Director, available at the phone number and email address above.

Due to the quasi-judicial nature of the Regulatory Process of the Land and Water Boards of the Mackenzie Valley, there are certain limitations as to what the Board Chair and Executive Director are able to speak about. Board decisions, submissions made by other parties, or any other evidence must speak for themselves. The staff cannot interpret or explain any information that is on the public record. All the evidence is available on the MVLWB’s public registry, which is accessible through the MVLWB website. If you would like to gain a better understanding of the information on the public record, please contact the groups or individuals or outside expert who submitted the particular document(s).

Media requests are referred to designated Executive Directors, who may provide remarks on procedural issues. It may be acceptable in certain situations for written responses to be provided by the Executive Director(s) to media requests.

The Land and Water Boards of the Mackenzie Valley are independent, public boards funded by the federal government. Its governing legislation is the Mackenzie Valley Resource Management Act (MVRMA) and the Board is subject to the federal Access to Information and Privacy Acts.
