Wekweètı̀ Climate Change and Winter Road Survey

In July and October 2019, community meetings were held in Wekweètı̀ to discuss the formation of a Wekweètı̀ Knowledge Centre. Those who attended these meetings expressed interest in forming a Knowledge Centre, and identified climate change and the Wekweètı̀ winter road as being priorities for the first project of the Knowledge Centre. 

To address the community concerns about climate change and the Wekweètı̀ winter road, the Community Government of Wekweètı̀ has partnered with the Tłı̨chǫ Government and Wilfrid Laurier University on a survey about climate change and the Wekweètı̀ winter road. The survey is the first step in a project that will assess the climate change vulnerability of Wekweètı̀ given a shortened winter road season in the future. 

The survey will ask you questions about environmental changes you have noticed on the land, changes you’ve noticed with wildlife and birds, and also about climate change related to the Wekweètı̀ winter road. The results of the survey will be used in a project to assess the climate change vulnerability of Wekweètı̀ to a shortened winter road season in the future. The survey will take about 30 minutes to complete. It is open to current residents of Wekweètı̀ and each person who fills out the survey will be paid $50.00 by the Tłı̨chǫ Government. 

Please contact Mary-Adele Football for any questions regarding the survey and/or for assistance in completing the survey.
