See what people are asking about Deline Self-Government

  • Yes. Canada and the GNWT continue to work with us on transition matters as required and as requested. The GNWT, through the Department of Municipal and Community Affairs, is providing us with expertise in areas such as elections, human resources and financial accounting. Self-government means there is a change in the relationship between the three governments, but it continues to be a cooperative relationship. As Deline is the first community self-government in Canada there is a lot to learn, which makes it especially important to work together.

  • Yes. While we will still need to do careful planning, a lot of work has already been done to get ready.

    The new government will not take on all of its possible roles and powers at once. At first, it will only take on what the existing organizations are already doing, as well as a few things it needs to operate as a government. Over time, it will take on more responsibilities as it is ready.
