The Gwich’in Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement (GCLCA) sets out the authority of the GRRB to “establish rules and procedures for the carrying out of any consultation required by these provisions” (s. 12.8.23g). The GRRB regularly consults with the Gwich’in, RRCs, other Gwich’in organizations, federal and territorial governments and the general public, with the main goal of protecting the wildlife and wildlife habitat within the GSA. The GRRB will consult on a variety of topics, including limitation of harvest, setting Gwich’in Needs Levels, approval of management plans, advice to government, making decisions on commercial harvesting, setting research priorities in the GSA, etc.
The GRRB has engaged the Gwich’in in the development of the GRRB’s rules and procedures for consultation. All consultation documents in the public record will be provided on the public registry.
