Northern Public Affairs is pleased to annouce the release of our first special issue, “Pathways to Prosperity: Voices from the Northern Governance and Economy Conference.” A free digital download is available below.
Following the Northern Governance and Economy Conference, guest editors Stephanie Irlbacher-Fox and Hayden King brought together an impressive range of voices to discuss the economic and social effects of resource development in the Northwest Territories. The issue features articles and speeches by NWT Premier Bob McLeod on devolution, NWT Minister David Ramsay on economic development, Canadian Medical Association President Dr. Anna Reid on Northern health care, Julia Christensen on homelessness in Northern Canada, and Frances Abele on understanding the new Northern economy. The issue also features images by Dene photographers Morris Neyelle (Sahtugotine) and Amos Scott (Tlicho).
