Co-Management Plan for Grizzly Bears

The Inuvialuit Final Agreement (IFA) states grizzly bears in the ISR will be cooperatively managed to ensure that grizzly bears and their habitat are protected and the harvesting rights of Inuvialuit are preserved. In this spirit, many parties, including WMAC(NS), came together to decide how grizzly bears should be management in the region. The Co-Management Plan for Grizzly Bears in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region (ISR) was adopted in 1998.

The Inuvialuit Final Agreement

Signed in 1984, the Inuvialuit Final Agreement (IFA) stands as one of Canada's first modern land claims. As signatories to the IFA, Inuvialuit, Canada, and the Government of Yukon all have constitutionally protected rights, roles, and responsibilities under the Agreement. The IFA is also where WMAC(NS) was born - the Wildlife Management Advisory Council for the North Slope springs directly from the Agreement and has been active since 1988.
