Flood remediation and recovery

The Government of Yukon mounted the largest flood relief effort in the territory’s history in the spring and summer of 2021, in response to unprecedented water levels.

Water levels have continued to decline since August 17, and the territory is now in recovery phase. The Yukon government is developing a remediation and recovery program that will assist Yukoners in restoring their properties and mitigating against future flooding events.

Property damage questionnaire

As part of the recovery program, the Yukon Housing Corporation has developed a questionnaire to engage with property owners impacted by the flooding. The information requested will help YHC determine the appropriate funding support required.

Download the questionnaire here.

Boil water advisories in effect

Boil water advisories are in effect for multiple areas, as a result of the rising water levels along the Yukon River. We expect to lift all these advisories later this summer when flood waters recede.

Residents of these areas who use private wells or underground water storage tanks should boil their water for 2 minutes before use:
