Finance


Our Finance Department is here to serve the Nation.  We provide support to the Nation’s Departments, Chief and Council, employees, funding agencies, suppliers and the public. We are responsible for the planning, management, stewardship, and safe-keeping of our human, financial, physical, and environmental assets.

Our vision is to strive to facilitate informed decision making with all departments regarding Tl’azt’en Nation’s resources in order to sustain our financial strength and viability for current and future generations.

We strive to present accurate and timely financial reports to Chief and Council, our Members, Funding Agencies and Department Managers as required. We prepare annual budgets with all Managers and present them to Chief and Council.  All Managers must take responsibility for their budgets for the Nation to remain fiscally responsible.

We are here to serve but not to enable.  Our manual cheque runs are twice a week (currently Tuesdays and Thursdays) and payroll is done every 2 weeks. No exceptions.
