As the primary agency responsible for the administration and development of all federal lands and natural resources in the former North-West Territories, the Department of the Interior played a significant role in the formation of federal scrip policy; in the creation and management of the scrip commissions; and in the administration of each commission's decisions concerning the awards given to individual Métis families. Given its mandate, it is only natural then that the majority of scrip commission records held by the National Archives should be found in the record group established for the Department of the Interior (RG 15).”

    “The Canadian Diatom Database includes approximately 3,000 diatom samples with their description, precise geographic location and associated information. Diatoms are powerful indicators of environmental conditions as they respond quickly to environmental changes, and they are widely utilized in stratigraphic investigations. The data provides accurate, abundant and readily available information essential for the proper interpretation of any modern or fossil diatom assemblage. This key source of climate indicators provides an invaluable long term time series to determining climate variations in the Canadian Arctic.”
