Contaminants Report

 

The issue of contaminants, both in the environment as well as in country foods, has been a concern for people of the Inuvialuit Settlement Region for a number of years. While many studies have been carried out in the past 20 years the reports have often been difficult to find or interpret.

To help solve that problem, the FJMC commissioned Colin Macdonald of Northern Environmental Consulting to review recent studies and prepare a summary of the status  of three classes of contaminants in the ISR: persistent organic pollutants, metals and radionuclides. 

Keep in mind that the report is approximately 65 pages long so that it may take some time to download.
