The Akaitcho Territory Government (ATG) represents the collective social, political, cultural, environmental and economic interests of its constituent First Nations.
The ATG exists to assist Akaitcho communities as they develop the self-sufficiency required to realize their individual and collective future goals and objectives. Its prime function is to facilitate and coordinate the transitional efforts of its members as they move toward meaningful First Nation governance.
During this transition the constituent First Nations determine the role and mandate, and give direction to, the ATG.
