What is this engagement about? 

The purpose of the Clean Energy Act is to legislate our greenhouse gas commitments, provide the Government of Yukon with the regulatory tools needed to meet those greenhouse gas commitments, and ensure long-term climate change accountability through public reporting.

How we got here?

The Government of Yukon conducted extensive public engagements in developing Our Clean Future: a Yukon strategy for climate change, energy and a green economy.

Our Clean Future’s Commitment L1 states the government will create a Clean Energy Act that “legislates our greenhouse gas reduction targets and our commitments to energy efficiency and demand-side management to hold the Government of Yukon accountable”. 

We are proposing the legislative framework for the Clean Energy Act and possible ways of implementing the existing commitments being legislated.

The Government of Yukon already completed extensive public engagements on the broad topics around clean energy during the development of Our Clean Future. This engagement is specifically focused on how to implement the existing commitments being legislated.

How will my input make a difference? 

Your feedback will help build a consistent and appropriate approach to how we implement the existing commitments and achieve the Our Clean Future’s overall goals and targets.

Where can I find related information? 

Information on the need to develop a clean energy legislation can be found in Our Clean Future.
