Monfwi[1] is a territorial electoral district for the Legislative Assembly of the Northwest Territories, Canada. The district consists of Behchoko, Gamèti, Wekweeti and Whatì.[2]

The current Member of the Legislative Assembly is Jackson Lafferty.[3]

Renaming[edit]

The electoral district was renamed from North Slave to Monfwi on August 4, 2005. The date was chosen to coincide with the date the Tlicho Land Claim and Self-Government Agreement came into effect. The name change effected Jackson Lafferty who was elected in a by-election on July 18, 2005 and took his seat in the legislature on August 11, 2005. He was still considered to be elected as the elected member for the North Slave riding despite being sworn in after the name was changed.[4]
