SSI's Mandate on Sahtu Enrolment

One of the mandates of the Sahtu Secretariat Incorporated is to uphold the rights, interest and benefits of the Sahtu Dene and Métis in reference to the Constitution Act, Treaty 11 and the Sahtu Dene and Métıs Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement (SDMCLCA).​

Pursuant to Chapter 4 of the SDMCLCA, the SSI is responsible for both the costs and the appointment of a seven-person Sahtu Enrolment Board (SEB) with one person representing  each of the seven Aboriginal  communities in the Sahtu region (see Appendix 1).

The responsibilities of the SEB include the following:

  • Accept applications and  signed consent forms for enrolment.

  • Establish an Enrolment Registry and enter the names of each person eligible to be enrolled.

  • Maintain the  Enrolment Registry

  • Maintain a record of applications for which enrolment was rejected.

  • Notify each applicant whose name has not  been entered into  the  Enrolment Register of the reasons for the decision to refuse enrolment and of that applicant’s right to appeal any decision with respect to enrolment.

  • Remove from  the  Enrolment Register the  names of persons who  are not minors and who have notified the Board in writing  that their name is to be removed, and the names of minors whose parent or guardian have notified the Board that the minor’s name is to be removed from the Register.
     

The SEB conducts meetings at least three times per year in the Sahtu region to review, approve, or decline applications for enrolment.

Sahtu Enrolment Board Responsibilities:
 

The Board is responsible for enrolling all eligible persons of Sahtu Dene or Métis ancestry in the SDMLCA and for publishing an Enrolment Registry once a year, listing all enrolled Participants.
