The Government of C/TFN is structured to reflect the medicine wheel. Each department represents one portion of the medicine wheel. The Capacity Development Department represents the 'mental' portion of the medicine wheel. This department is responsible for overseeing the education, training, and employment of C/TFN citizens and staff.

The Capacity Development Department also supports the needs of C/TFN students from Kindergarten to Grade 12. This includes kids attending Ghuch Tla Elementary School in Carcross, as well as students who move on to high school in Whitehorse.
After highschool, the C/TFN Capacity Development Department provides support, financial and otherwise, for post-secondary and training needs of C/TFN citizens.
