North Slave Region

The boundaries of the North Slave Region include the Tlicho lands. The Tlicho Land Claims and Self-Government Act ratified on February 15, 2005, allocated title of approximately 39,000 square kilometres of land in the North Slave, including subsurface resources, to the Tlicho (Dogrib) people. This Act also gives the Tlicho Government legislative authority over these lands. Tlicho Government has replaced the Dogrib Treaty 11 Council.
