This is the second progress report for the Yellowknife Health Effects Monitoring Program (YKHEMP). This report provides an overview of the YKHEMP 2017-28 sampling project, as well as a description of the results. It is written in a plain-language fashion.
The Health Effects Monitoring Program takes place in Chief Drygeese territory. From time immemorial, this has been the traditional land of the Yellowknives Dene First Nation, and more recently, the homeland of the North Slave Métis Alliance. We respect the histories, languages, and cultures of First Nations, Métis, Inuit, and all First Peoples of Canada.
