Scope and content

The records date from 1975-1976. The first reel is a recording of a board meeting from 1976. Discussion involves representation from the GNWT, the federal government, the Northern Canada Power Commission (the predecessor to the NWT Power Corporation), the Canada Mortgage and Housing Commission (CMHC), and the Northern Transportation Company Ltd. (NTCL). Subjects include housing in Inuvik, the level of postal service in Yellowknife, runway conditions, and tailings ponds. Included is a discussion of the functions of the Treasury Board Secretariat led by Gary Mullins. In addition the board discusses GNWT staff housing, an Arctic Air Symposium, a task force on northern business, and airport manager training in the NWT, the viability of Arctic Bay, the creation of the road to Nanisivik from Arctic Bay, and the lead-zinc mine opened by Cominco on Little Cornwallis Island. The second reel features a panel discussion on the the status of women and the International Year of Women in the NWT in which the impact of the Royal Commission on the Status of Women (1967) and its effect on the creation of the NWT Status of Women Action Committee is discussed. This also includes background on the National Action Committee (NAC) and the look ahead to the International Year of Women (1975).
