In Committee from the Senate of Canada - Aboriginal Peoples - June 10, 2015

The committee holds a hearing on Bill C-63, legislation to enact the Déline Final Self-Government Agreement. Déline would become the first Northwest Territories community to be self-governed, and would have direct control over areas such as like education, social services and culture.

Déline First Nation Chief Leonard Kenny, Déline Land Corporation president Gina Dolphus and Déline chief negotiator Danny Gaudet testify first.
Senators then hear from Northwest Territories Government representatives Fred Talen (director of negotiations, Aboriginal Affairs and Intergovernmental Relations) and Ian Blackstock (legal counsel, Department of Justice).

The last panel is made up of the following federal government senior officials: Janine Dunlop (senior director) and Ian Hamilton (senior negotiator) from Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada's Northwest Territories Directorate; Sara Gill (senior tax policy officer with Finance Canada's Aboriginal tax policy section); and Mary Jean Rolando (counsel in Justice Canada's negotiations and northern affairs section)
The committee conducts its clause-by-clause consideration after hearing from the witnesses. (June 10, 2015) UPDATE: Bill C-63 received royal assent on June 18.
