Where can I find results? 

We’re developing the framework on mining in municipalities.

A final summary will follow a potential round of public engagement on the framework.

What was this engagement about? 

We’re in the process of developing the Mineral Staking and Development Framework for mining in communities. The framework suggests approaches to:

  • prevent and resolve land use conflicts between mining operations and Yukon communities;
  • improve coordination between community land use planning and mineral regulatory processes; and
  • find ways for mining activities within Yukon communities to respect community values and interests.
How will my input make a difference? 

We will consider your input as we finalize the framework.
