Yukon First Nations are at the forefront of Aboriginal land claims and self-government in Canada. 11 of 14 First Nations have settled their land claims and are self-governing.
This represents approximately half of all such agreements in Canada.
The Indian Act continues to apply to 3 Yukon First Nations.
The Indian Act no longer applies to Self-Governing Yukon First Nations, and they have powers similar to those of a Canadian province or territory.
