Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation Integrated Community Sustainability Plan

VGFN Integrated Community Sustainability Plan

Project Description

In 2009, Inukshuk was commissioned by the Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation to develop an ICSP for Old Crow, the only Yukon community without road access. This required a comprehensive assessment of local infrastructure challenges, including limited land availability, existing infrastructure conditions, air transport considerations, drainage and riverbank flood erosion protection, permafrost management as well as cultural and heritage value considerations. The end result was a clear 10 year capital plan for the future of Old Crow that has been used to justify winter road planning, airport upgrades, riverbank stabilization, road/surface drainage improvements and waste management upgrades.

White River First Nation Integrated Community Sustainability Plan

WRFN Integrated Community Sustainability Plan

Project Description

Inukshuk completed their Comprehensive Community Development Plan in 2009. The First Nation is still under the Indian Act because of an unsettled land claim. Beaver Creek is Canada’s furthest west community on the Alaskan border. With a population of 100, the unincorporated community has many sustainability challenges. The result was a specialized plan with provisions tailored to best manage these unique circumstances.
