Join us for our first symposium on pests, pathogens, and invasive species in the NWT 

The Northwest Territories is establishing a council to help prevent the spread, help control, monitor and then take action on pests, pathogens and invasive species in the NWT.  This new council will be called NWT Pests, Pathogens and Invasive Species Council.   

Come and learn more about these important threats to our biodiversity, learn from the experiences of our neighbouring jurisdictions, learn what you can do to help and take actions, and help set up the council for the future.
