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 acknowledges that our work takes place in Chief Drygeese territory. From time immemorial, it has been the traditional land of the Yellowknives Dene First Nation. We respect the histories, languages, and cultures of all other Indigenous Peoples including the North Slave Métis, and all First Nations, Métis, and Inuit.
