Given the increasing politicization of indigenous peoples and today's climate of "enlightened" race relations, many states are seeking to restructure their relationship with the aboriginal populations within their borders. In Canada, efforts are underway to develop processes that more fully and fairly incorporate aboriginal people into the Canadian state. These efforts are intended to empower First Nation people by granting them a significant role in the governance of their own lands and people. On the face of it, this seems a vast improvement over many of the racist and assimilationist policies of the past. In this dissertation, however, I argue that for First Nation people in Canada, this new relationship with...

The purpose of this report is to summarize the history of human‐bear interactions in the vicinity of the Congdon Creek campground between 1976 and 2013. The goal is to trace the development of the campground as well as an adjacent solid waste landfill and document, to the extent possible, the number and variety of human‐bear interactions that have occurred in the area over the last 37 years. This will serve as useful background information as we proceed with our experimental removal of soapberry bushes in the immediate campground area and will help determine if the number of human‐bear conflicts in the area is affected by removing natural attractants within the campground.

The objective of this project was to identify landscape hazards in the Village of Mayo and nearby surroundings by compiling geoscience data from various field studies and scientific reviews (surficial geology, permafrost and hydrology). This data was used to create a map of landscape hazards that delineate low, moderate and high-risk areas in the Mayo region. Potential impacts of a changing climate were incorporated in the identification of these three hazard zones. Concurrent to the Hazards Mapping Project, the Northern Climate ExChange has begun developing an adaptation plan for the community of Mayo. The hazards project has contributed significantly to the assessment of vulnerability for the community of Mayo....

Northern communities are currently facing many social and economic challenges. The non-profit, voluntary, and co-operative organizations involved in the social economy sector assist communities with these challenges by empowering them through the development of social and human capital. This article is part of an initial evaluation of the potential of the social economy to assist northern communities to deal with these challenges and develop this capacity. It offers an initial description of the state of the social economy in Canada's North through an examination of the results of a census of these organizations and a subsequent survey. The analysis shows that social economy organizations are particularly important...
