The Tlicho Government formally signed on to the N.W.T.'s devolution agreement-in-principle at a ceremony Friday in Behchoko.

The Tlicho are the last aboriginal group with a settled land claim to sign on to the agreement to transfer control of public land and resources from the federal government to the N.W.T.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper is expected in Yellowknife on Monday, and it is anticipated he will announce a final devolution agreement has been reached.

However, the final agreement won't be signed right away as the territorial government still plans to do community consultations before sealing the deal.
