Oil, Gas and Energy

Attention:

On April 1, 2014, the administration and control of public lands and resources were transferred from Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada to the Government of the Northwest Territories. This transfer includes the administration, control and management of onshore lands, waters, mines, minerals, and oil and gas in the NWT.

Visit the GNWT online for information on devolving programs after April 1, 2014.

Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada has a responsibility to ensure that offshore oil and gas proceeds within a sound environmental framework. The department also has a mandate to support Aboriginal people in developing healthy, sustainable communities and in achieving their economic and social aspirations.

How does the department responsibly administer and manage offshore oil and gas resources in the Northwest Territories?

Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada - NWT Region works closely with the department's Northern Petroleum Resources Branch to administer and manage offshore oil and gas resources.
