The Northern Region consists of 54 First Nations communities; in which each community elects their own First Nations Chief based on their own selection process.
In the creation of the Northern Regional Caucus, the Leadership geographically created three Sub-Regional Groups: North East Sub-Region, North West Sub-Region and the North Central Sub-Region. The Sub-Groups together created the First Nations Northern Regional Health Caucus, which represented 54 communities in the North. Each Sub-Region governed their work through Terms of References and their own selection process for appointing their FNHC Representative.
Through the Northern Regional Caucus, political and technical leaders in heath work together to involve First Nations leadership in the planning and monitoring of health services that impact First Nations communities in the North.
