Who's involved


Multiple organizations

An NWT-based initiative

The project is led by a Steering Committee that consists of four Indigenous organizations: the Gwich’in Tribal Council (GTC), the Inuvialuit Regional Corporation (IRC), the Sahtú Renewable Resources Board (SRRB), and the Tłı̨chǫ Government.

These organizations are partnering with other NWT-based organizations, the Smart Communities Society (NWT), Aurora College, and the Aurora Research Institute.

Across Canada

The University of Alberta (Faculty of Extension and School of Library and Information Studies) is involved in research and curriculum development for the project.

Hands On Media Education is providing digital storytelling workshops and videography support for the project.

DigitalNWT is a project on Tides Canada’s shared platform.
