On 2000, the chief negotiators for Canada, the GNWT and Dogrib Treaty 11 Council initialled the Tłı̨chǫ Agreement-in-Principle. The AIP set out all the major terms reached in negotiations, and would form the basis of the Final Agreement.
The AIP identifies which lands would become Tłı̨chǫ Lands, and describes the area to be recognized as the Monfwi Gogha Deniitlee, or traditional Tłı̨chǫ territory. The AIP set out the amount of compensation dollars that would be transferred to the new Tłı̨chǫ Government for the benefit of all Tłı̨chǫ, and set out the powers of the Tłı̨chǫ Government.
Tłı̨chǫ approved the AIP at an Assembly in January 7, 2000, giving the Tłı̨chǫ negotiating team the authority to continue negotiations for the Final Agreement.
