Social issues Committee


The Social Issues Committee was established by City Council in 2009 to assist the City, the Government of the Northwest Territories and the Government of Canada in an advisory capacity regarding social issues within the City of Yellowknife's municipal boundaries. The Social Issues Committee was dissolved in February 2017.

The City of Yellowknife has identified that there may be gaps in services or a lack of services in specific social fields. A Social Plan was requested by City Council and developed for the City to assist in dealing with other orders of government to be proactive in voicing concerns or looking at issues that may affect residents. The "Championing Well-Being in Yellowknife: City of Yellowknife Social Plan" was accepted for information by City Council on July 27, 2009. The Terms of Reference for the Social Issues Committee were adopted by City Council on September 14, 2009.
