This Northwest Territories Bill, is responsible for the management, administration and delivery of health, education and other social programs and services to all residents in the four Tłįchǫ communities and on Tłįchǫ lands, based on Tłįchǫ Laws and NWT Laws.
This Northwest Territories Bill gave government approval to the original Tłįchǫ Agreement, signed in August 2003. This is the land claims and self government agreement among the Tłįchǫ, the Government of Canada and the Government of the Northwest Territories. The bill also approves the Tłįchǫ Tax Treatment Agreement.
The Tłı̨chǫ Land Claims and Self-Government Agreement was signed on August 25 2003, exactly 82 years after Treaty 11 was signed by Chief Monfwi in 1921. The Agreement was signed by representatives of the Dogrib Treaty 11 Council, the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) and the Government of Canada. The Tłı̨chǫ Agreement is the first combined land claim and self-government agreement in the Northwest Territories.
This Agreement between Canada, the Northwest Territories and the Tłı̨chǫ created the Tłı̨chǫ Community Services Agency, successor to the Dogrib Community Services Board. The Agency provides Education, Health and Social Services to the people of the Tłı̨chǫ, and is controlled by the Tłı̨chǫ. The inclusion of culture and language in the operation of these services is also covered. Services include those normally supplied by the Government of the Northwest Territories, as well as certain services provided by the Government of Canada, and education, health and social services developed by the Tłı̨chǫ Government.
The Financing Agreement provides the money to run the Tłı̨chǫ Government. It also includes money for one-time costs like building facilities, buying computers and preparing new laws. . Every five years, the Financing Agreement will be reviewed to make sure activities are funded properly. In the future, if the Tłı̨chǫ Government earns enough money from its own revenue sources, it will reduce the amount needed to be transferred under the Financing Agreement. In this way, the Tłı̨chǫ Government will gradually become self-sufficient.
The implementation plan is an agreement among the Tłı̨chǫ Government, Canada and the GNWT to make sure all the promises and commitments made in the Tłı̨chǫ.
