Written Question 46-19(2): Post-Devolution Mining Revenues to the Government of the Northwest Territories
Written Questions

Page 4523

Kevin O'Reilly Frame Lake

My questions are for the Minister of Industry, Tourism and Investment.

The "Review of Royalty Regulations in the Development of Resources Legislation in the NWT" research paper states that "government and investors should share pre-tax cash flow over the life of a mine roughly on a 50:50 basis." There are a number of scattered references to post-devolution government revenues in this research paper but no clear, systematic, and detailed presentation of post-devolution government revenues from mining.

Please provide the average annual total of retained revenues from mining to the Government of the NWT from April 1, 2014 to March 31, 2022 including the following:

  1. An itemized listing of all the sources of revenues included in the annual average retained revenues (For example, mining royalties, corporate taxes, property taxes, payroll tax, fuel tax, and any other revenues);
  2. The average annual value of diamonds and any other minerals produced and exported from the NWT over this period of time;
  3. The average annual values of any mining revenues shared with Indigenous governments over this period of time; and
  4. An analysis of whether the net retained revenues from mining to the Government of the Northwest Territories meets the target of between 40 to 60 percent of pre-tax cash flow generated by a project as the government share, as recommended by the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund.

Mahsi, Mr. Speaker.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Status of housing renovation in the Tlicho region.

Mr. Speaker, my questions are for the Minister responsible for Housing NWT.

According to the budget for this fiscal year, there were 22 housing units that were to be renovated in Behchoko during this fiscal year. Summer is here and renovations should be underway, but the community has not seen progress.

Mr. Speaker, my question for the Minister is how many units in Behchoko are actually being renovated in 2022-2023; and further, for those units:

  1. How many of the units renovated are empty units that will be renovated to make them available to people on the waiting list;
  2. How many of the renovation contracts were awarded to businesses located in the Tlicho region;
  3. How many Tlicho residents received training or apprenticeship through the renovation projects in Behchoko; and
  4. How many renovations of units will be completed by the end of the current fiscal year.

Thank you.
