The Governance Department represents the centre of the medicine wheel: the self, the will, the volition.

The Governance Department is responsible for implementing the final and self-government agreements, including ongoing negotiation, legislation, and policy development. This Department also supports the governing bodies of C/TFN: General Council, Executive Council, Justice Council, and Youth Council. Clan development and support, along with membership and registry, is primarily managed through Governance.

Governance is also the main liaison to other governments (First Nations, Territorial, Federal) and organizations (Council of Yukon First Nations, Assembly of First Nations, etc).
