dc.description.abstractThe effects of environmental change are significant to the lives of people in the North, especially those with a close connection to and reliance on the land. The implications of environmental change are creating new risks, hazards and opportunities for off-road travel associated with accessing land/water based resources and recreation. This research highlights how environmental change is altering the snowmobile season, the boating season and the all-terrain vehicle season. Consistent with Traditional/Local and Scientific observations, the snowmobile season is decreasing in length and the boating season in increasing in length. While all-terrain vehicles are generally capable of travelling year round there are new and increased hazards associated with this type of transportation during certain seasons. In addition, several new risks and hazards face harvesters travelling on the land as a result of recent changes in the environment.en_US
