The role of the Nation and Economic Development Circle is to support the member local Nations establish both a Territorial and a Nation specific governance structure that will support them to move beyond the Indian Act regime. To reach these objectives, the following is planned:
- Member Local Nation First Law (Constitution)
- FNT2T First Law (Constitution)
The process of development continues to be conducted with leadership, elders, nation members and the youth. Engagement sessions held locally and on a territory level with the intention to inform the people and receive recommendations for further development.
