Governance

The Governance Department represents the centre of the medicine wheel: the self, the will, the volition.

The Governance Department is responsible for implementing the final and self-government agreements, including ongoing negotiation, legislation, and policy development. This Department also supports the governing bodies of C/TFN: General Council, Executive Council, Elders Council, Justice Council, Family Council and Youth Council. Clan development and support, along with citizenship and registry, is primarily managed through Governance.

Governance is also the main liaison to other governments (First Nations, Territorial, Federal) and organizations (Council of Yukon First Nations, Assembly of First Nations, etc).

Mission

The Governance office shall bring inspiration and innovation to Carcross/Tagish First Nation and be a model of excellence in Self Government; providing safe, progressive and well-planned governing services delivered in a respectful manner reflective of our core values: selflessness, honour, respect, courage, integrity, knowledge, compassion and honesty.

The Governance office shall assist C/TFN Citizens in attaining and maintaining a higher standard of government services and opportunities which will provide equal benefits and possibilities for a balanced community.

By overseeing the main mission of Carcross/Tagish First Nation set by our Elders, the Governance office is the pulse to the organization by maintaining a balanced structure of the government.

Vision

To have a transparent, accountable government with well informed Citizens and Clans. To offer opportunities and services to C/TFN Citizens by ensuring a well balanced lifestyle for the generations to come.
