The negotiations objective are to come to an agreement that will clarify ownership and rights to lands and resources within the five regions in Denendeh (Northwest Territories). They will discuss how these lands, resources and water will be managed and look at the structure, operation, legal status and extent of Dene regional and community governments. They will also include measures to enhance the capacity of each region to participate fully in the economy.

 

There are three parties involved in the negotiations: regional Dene First Nation groups, the Government of Canada and the Government of the Northwest Territories.
