Introduction to Northern Government

Introduction to Northern Government is intended for all northern participants – those new to the North, as well as lifelong-residents.  Through readings, audio, video and online activities, learners acquire an understanding of the history, scope and scale of federal, territorial and municipal government in the North, and of the relationships between the levels of government.
