Renewable Resource Councils (RRCs)   

Each community within the Gwich’in Settlement Area has a Renewable Resource Council (RRC) with a mandate to promote local involvement in conservation, harvest studies, research and wildlife management. Established by the local Designated Gwich’in Organization, each RRC is composed of up to seven councillors who are residents of the community. Each council also has one staff member, the RRC Coordinator, who manages their day to day operations and acts as a point of contact for the RRC. The four RRCs meet with each other regularly to discuss common resource management issues, holding an annual winter meeting in January of each year.

The Gwich'in Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement requires the GRRB to consult with the Renewable Resource Councils on major decisions, but in practice we seek their guidance far more frequently. The RRCs are the eyes and ears of the land and they provide advice and community perspectives on all the work that the GRRB does, including the identification of research interests at the community level.

The RRCs do a lot of work with only a single staff member, so during busy times of the year they may not be able to respond to messages immediately. If you need their assistance, contacting them well in advance is appreciated.
