The Government of Yukon and the 11 self-governing First Nations are committed to the long-term responsible management of Yukon’s mineral resources, and to supporting a healthy mining industry that adheres to high environmental and social standards.
To help achieve this, they collectively appointed an independent panel. The independent panel hosted a nine-month public engagement process.
Input was collected through regional online open houses, focus groups, a toll-free line, over 90+ meetings, two surveys, written submissions, a two-day session with elders, and more.
The panel used the extensive input collected from this process to develop the Yukon Mineral Development Strategy and Recommendations.
The panel’s final recommendations will be submitted to First Nations and the Government of Yukon for consideration and possible implementation.
How did we do on this public engagement?
In April 2021, the independent panel released the final Yukon Mineral Development Strategy and Recommendations report. The panel submitted the report to the Government of Yukon and First Nations for their review and consideration.
