See what people are asking about Deline Self-Government

  • Under the FSGA, the DGG will deliver local services to all residents of Deline as the Charter Community of Deline is currently doing. Residents of Deline who currently meet eligibility requirements for existing territorial or federal programs and services will continue to receive those programs and services from those governments after self-government. When the DGG is ready, it will be able to exercise its social jurisdictions for all residents of Deline. When that happens, discussions will take place among the governments to ensure a smooth transition.

    All residents of Deline who are Canadian citizens and meet age and residency requirements may run for office in the DGG and may vote in DGG elections, though there will be some positions that will only be open to Deline First Nation Citizens to run for and vote on.

  • The leaders of the Deline Got’ine Government will be elected on June 6, 2016. This election is being run under the NWT Local Authorities Election Act. Once the government is up and running, the Deline Got’ine Government may develop its own election act for future elections.

    The election will be for Ekwatide (Chief)and for six council positions on the Deline K’aowedo Ke (DKK—Main Council). The ʔohda K’aowe Ke (Elders Council) is appointing their own members and will appoint a representative to the DKK.

    The Dene Gha Gok’e rehkw’i (DGGR) (Beneficiaries Board) draft law is presently being reviewed by community members. It will be made up of the Ekwatide and four beneficiaries (including seats reserved for non-residents) appointed by a nominations committee.
