There is a growing awareness at all levels of government and in society at large of the value of on the land programming for the wellbeing of individuals and communities. However, there is still a need to communicate the benefits of on the land programming to politicians, bureaucrats, and funders so they invest in land-based programs. Equally important is removing barriers to on the land programs. The NWTRPA works with the On The Land Leaders Network and partner organizations to advocate for increased support for land-based programs in the NWT.
