The governmental structure of Teslin Tlingit Council (TTC) incorporates traditional Teslin Tlingit Clan culture into contemporary organizational and management principles.

Responsible Governance

TTC is both representative, of the Clans and its Citizens, and responsible—two characteristics it has in common with other democratic governments. The distinguishing feature of responsible government is the close relations between the executive and legislative branches. To this effect, the Executive Council, who initiates policy and watches over the enforcement of the law, works in harmony with the General Council, who enacts laws and charts the overall political course.

Delegation Of Authority

TTC is structured based on the principle of delegation of authority to effectively and efficiently administer the separation of powers through its various governing bodies, departments, boards and committees, trusts, and special operating agencies.

Accountable Governance

TTC firmly believes in the principle of ensuring accountability, the key expressions of which are disclosure, transparency and redress.
