Our Governance Directorate manages intergovernmental and fiscal relations with self-governing Yukon First Nations and the Government of Yukon, as well as relations with Indian Act First Nations. It also manages federal land claim and self-government implementation obligations and negotiations. In addition, the Governance Directorate delivers capacity programming and governance related programs.

Intergovernmental Affairs

Our Intergovernmental Affairs unit helps build and maintain relations between the Government of Canada, the Government of Yukon, Self-Governing Yukon First Nations, First Nations governed by the Indian Act, the Council of Yukon First Nations, and other First Nation organizations. This unit also delivers grants and contributions programming

Negotiations and Implementation

Our Negotiations and Implementation unit works with other parties to implement final and self-government agreements. We also coordinate with other federal departments to help meet the Government of Canada’s obligations under these agreements.
