  • The first elections for the Lheidli T’enneh government will be held within six months of the date the Final Agreement comes into effect. Until that election happens, the Chief and Councillors of the Lheidli T’enneh Band Council will continue to manage Lheidli T’enneh affairs. After the first election, elections will be held at least every five years.

The implementation plan identifies each party’s obligations and responsibilities in implementing the treaty.

    An implementation committee, made up of a representative from Lheidli T’enneh, Canada, and British Columbia, will be established to oversee the implementation plan.
