The P’egp’íg’lha governance structure includes four Councils: T’ít’q’et Council, P’egp’íg’lha Council, P’egp’íg’lha Elders Council and the P’egp’íg’lha Youth Council. The elected T’ít’q’et Council is responsible for Indian and Northern Affairs Canada programs and Health Canada programs, and on-reserve issues.

This responsibility includes financial management of programs and services, revenues, taxation; on-reserve lands and infrastructure; membership; oversight of administration offices; and the planning and oversight of all capital projects. The four Councils work in cooperation and report quarterly at the Joint Council meetings and general community meetings to ensure open and effective communication amongst the Councils and membership. The elected T’ít’q’et Council members serve a four year term.
