This letter contains notice that the SRRB received an additional late submission, on July 19, 2016, from the Colville Parties. The Board met on July 21, 2016 and made a decision to exercise its discretion and accept the late submission from the Colville Parties as relevant evidence in this Hearing.
The SRRB has required additional time to consider and integrate the additional evidence received from ENR, the Kugluktuk Hunters and Trappers Organisation and Colville into its decisions and final Report. In light of this, the Board has deferred its timeline for an additional three days, to July 28, 2016.
The Board reminds Parties in the hearing that section 13.8.24(b) of the Sahtú Dene and Métis Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement (SDMCLCA) provides that, unless the Minister directs otherwise, the SRRB’s Final Report will remain confidential for a period of 60 days, or until September 18, 2016.
