Land Acknowledgement 

We acknowledge the NAPEG office is located on Chief Drygeese territory, which are the traditional lands of the Yellowknives Dene First Nation since time immemorial. We also recognize that NAPEG regulates the engineering and geoscience professions in the Northwest Territories and Nunavut, which comprises portions of lands from Treaties 8, 11, the Nunavut Agreement and within Inuit Nunangat. We are grateful to live and work on these lands and are committed to deepening our understanding of the distinct histories, languages, and cultures of all Indigenous Peoples, including the Dene, Inuit and Métis peoples.
