7. (82) It is agreed that, for the purpose of coordinating land use planning for the Beaufort Sea Region, there shall be area-specific groups dealing only with the Inuvialuit Settlement Region and that native participation, including Inuvialuit participation, in each such group shall be equal to government participation. Where a Land Use Planning Commission or similar body is established for the Yukon Territory and the Northwest Territories, the area-specific groups shall be a part thereof.

The representation of the Government of Yukon Territory for matters north of the watershed and of the Government the Northwest Territories for matters in the Western Arctic Region shall increase as their respective jurisdictions increase and shall form a majority of government participation for matters exclusively within their respective jurisdictions.
