  • Tlicho Community Services Agency


    The Tlicho region stretches from the north-western shore of Great Slave Lake, reaching up almost to Great Bear Lake. Behchoko is the largest community in the Tlicho Region and is also the administrative headquarters for the Tlicho Community Services Agency.

    The Tlicho Community Services Agency provides for management, administration and delivery of key programs and services such as education, health care, and social services in the four Tlicho communities. The Tlicho Community Services Agency is the only authority that combines the functions of a health authority and an education council in the Northwest Territories. The Tlicho Community Services Agency Board is made up of five members, a chairperson, and one member from each of the four Tlicho communities.
