Toxic Legacies Project

The Toxic Legacies Project is a response to the Canadian government’s Giant Mine Remediation Project to freeze arsenic underground in pepetuity, a project that has recently undergone an extensive environmental assessment. As a “Partnership Development” project (funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC)), we also aim to communicate our research results in a way that will engage the community of Yellowknife and the broader concerned public. To do this, we have divided our work into five interconnected sub-projects.
