Finance Minister Robert McLeod told the legislative assembly last week that the GNWT is lobbying the federal government to improve the satellite regulatory system.

“The potential of growing Inuvik through national and international customers is very positive for our territory’s future,” he stated, referencing completion of the Mackenzie Valley Fibre Link earlier this year.

“Current federal licensing processes for satellite telecommunications are outdated, but our government will work with Canada to encourage them to modernize their regulatory regime and better support these opportunities for Inuvik.”
