Intergovernmental Council Launches Website

YELLOWKNIFE (October 16, 2015) – The Intergovernmental Council on land and resources launched their website today in an effort to share their work with the public.  The Intergovernmental Council consists of elected leaders of the Government of the Northwest Territories and Aboriginal Governments that have signed onto the Devolution Agreement. 

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 and resource management.  The Council is made up of the GNWT, Inuvialuit Regional Corporation, 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. 

All members were involved in the creation of this website and are committed to being transparent about their work. The website provides information on the structure, functions and activities of the Intergovernmental Council.

The Intergovernmental Council continues to focus on working together to manage land and resources in the NWT so that all northerners can continue to benefit now and in the future.
