NWT Assessment Schedule

About the schedule

The NWT Species at Risk Committee is an independent group of experts that assesses the biological status of species that may be at risk of extinction in the NWT using Indigenous and community knowledge and science. Click here to find out how the NWT assessment process works.

Species are reassessed in the NWT every 10 years. The assessment schedule is approved annually by the Conference of Management Authorities.
