See what people are asking about Deline Self-Government

  • The new Deline Got’ine Government (DGG) will not take on all powers right away. In fact, for the first several years, the DGG will mostly just be taking over the roles and responsibilities that people in the DFN, DLC and Charter Community are already managing, and will have the same staff. Over time, the DGG has the ability to choose to take on more responsibility when it is ready. There is also a Deline Transition Team that has developed a plan to make sure that Deline can handle the change.

  • The Sahtu Dene and Metis have a right to self-government that was included in their land claim agreement. The Deline Final Self-Government Agreement is a way for the Aboriginal people of Deline to put that right into action. It is an agreement between the Deline First Nation Band, the Deline Land Corporation, the Government of the Northwest Territories and the Government of Canada. It will give the band members and beneficiaries more control over the decisions that affect them every day, such as how government money is spent in their community and how local programs and services are delivered.
