Thirty five On the Land projects will receive money from the NWT On the Land Collaborative in 2017.

This year, the collective will distribute $634,845 across the territory to get people on the land and promote community wellbeing.

Grants range from $3000 to $60 000. Among the projects are a canoe trip for grade nine students in Fort Smith, a 10 day trip beginning in Tuktoyaktuk that will take youth and elders through the traditional hunting territory of their ancestors and a hide tanning camp in Lutsel Ke.

For this second year, the collaborative welcomes three new funding partners while all the previous ones renewed their commitments.
