Intergovernmental Council Meeting held in Yellowknife


June 18, 2019  (YELLOWKNIFE) – Leaders from the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) and Indigenous  governments, who are partners in Devolution, met in Yellowknife today to discuss a range of issues related to lands and resource management at the Intergovernmental Council meeting


As a key feature of the Devolution Agreement, the creation of an Intergovernmental Council allows governments to cooperate and collaborate on matters related to Lands, Resources and Water Management. The meetings help strengthen the territorial government’s relationships with the NWT Indigenous partners, a main priority of the 18th Legislative Assembly.


Leaders from the GNWT, Northwest Territory Métis Nation, Sahtu Secretariat Incorporated, Gwich’in Tribal Council, Tłı̨chǫ Government, Acho Dene Koe First Nation, Salt River First Nation, Denínu Kų́ę́ First Nation and the Kátł’odeeche First Nation were involved in the meeting and discussed a range of lands, water and resources issues including the federal Bill C-88, legislative and policy priorities and we continue to develop our government-to government working relationships.
