Alaska Highway West local area planning

The Government of Yukon and Champagne and Aishihik First Nations are developing a local area plan for an area along the Alaska Highway west of Whitehorse. A steering committee of area residents will help develop the plan.

What is local area planning

Local area plans guide the development and use of land in unincorporated Yukon communities. The plans designate areas for specific land uses. Learn more about local area planning.

In January 2023, the Government of Yukon and Champagne and Aishihik First Nations hired Stantec Consulting to prepare a background report for Phase 1 of the planning process.


In the fall of 2020 the Memorandum of Understanding for the process was updated.

Who’s on the steering committee?

The steering committee will be established once the background report is nearing completion.
