Archaeological Sites Act

(mirrored legislation)

The Archaeological Sites Act mirrored the provisions of the former Northwest Territories Act respecting archaeological, ethnological and historical resources, and provides authority to make regulations concerning the protection, care and preservation of these resources, archaeological permitting, and seizure of inappropriately obtained items.

The GNWT also mirrored the Northwest Territories Archaeological Sites Regulations that were under the Northwest Territories Act.

The Department of Education, Culture and Employment administers the new mirrored Archaeological Sites Act and the regulations under that act, consistent with its responsibilities for the territorial Historical Resources Act.
