Community Leaders Retreat

The NWTRPA Community Leaders Retreat is a highly interactive, informative, and idea provoking educational event. Both experienced and new community leaders will benefit from learning more about decolonization in the NWT.

The goal of the Community Leaders Retreat is to provide increased awareness and knowledge of decolonization, offer events that are fun and allow for interaction, and focus attention on the benefits of recreation among participants.
