The Honourable Joe Handley.

Weledeh[1][2] (or Yellowknife - Weledeh[3]) was a territorial electoral district for the Legislative Assembly of the Northwest Territories, Canada.

It was one of seven districts that represent Yellowknife, and included the more rural communities of Detah and N'Dilo.[4]

The riding was dissolved for the 2015 election, with the Yellowknife portion transferred to a new district of Yellowknife North and the Detah-N'Dilo portion merged with Tu Nedhe to create the new district of Tu Nedhé-Wiilideh.[5]
