Strategic Plan

Our five-year strategic plan was developed in 2011 and outlines our mission, goals and plans.

Our Mission

  • responsible development of mineral and energy resources
  • use of the land
  • protecting the environment

Our Goals

Goal 1: To be the principal resource for NWT geoscience information

Goal 2: To learn about the mineral resources of the NWT

Goal 3: To learn about the energy resources of the NWT

Goal 4: To provide information to decision-makers that could affect the land, environment and infrastructure of the NWT

Goal 5: To use modern methods and best practices in managing geoscience information for the NWT

Goal 6: To continually improve and expand the services provided to NWT stakeholders
