Self-Government Agreement (206 KB)
The Self-Government Agreement enables Teslin Tlingit Council (TTC) to found the legal and political framework for facilitating its government-to-government relations with Canada and Yukon.
To this end, the agreement sets out a comprehensive list of subject matters under which TTC assumes law-making authority, and among which TTC is entitled to enact its own laws in the following areas.
- The use, management and good governance of its Settlement Lands and the people living on these lands.
- The administration, operation and internal management of TTC affairs, including the rights and benefits realized pursuant to the TTC Final Agreement.
The legislative powers of TTC apply to TTC Citizens wherever they may reside in the Yukon.
The Self-Government Agreement means that TTC will become increasingly responsible in areas that were previously administered by the governments of Canada or Yukon. Pursuant to the agreement, TTC has the ability to negotiate the devolution of responsibility for the design, administration and delivery of programs and services for which Canada will provide funds through the Financial and Programs Service Transfer Agreements.
