Communities Getting Their Share of Devolution Revenues
The NWTAC made a submission to the GNWT Department of Finances 2013 budget consultations. The consultations focused on how new revenues coming to the GNWT as a result of devolution should be spent. The NWTAC made four key suggestions for where the revenues should be spent:
- reducing the municipal infrastructure deficit
- climate change adaptation
- reducing the deficit in the availability of adequate housing
- reviewing and increasing funding transfers to municipalities
