Notice

This website will change as a result of the dissolution of Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada, and the creation of Indigenous Services Canada and the eventual creation of Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada. During this transformation, you may also wish to consult the updated Indigenous and Northern Affairs home page.

The Giant Mine Remediation Project Team manages the joint interim office on behalf of the federal and territorial governments. Its focus is on both the long-term care and management of the arsenic trioxide waste stored underground, and the remediation of the entire Giant Mine site.

The Giant Mine Remediation Project Team is comprised of individuals from Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada, Public Works and Government Services Canada and the Government of the Northwest Territories.
