What is this engagement about? 

The Government of Yukon and the 11 self-governing Yukon 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 Draft Yukon Mineral Development Strategy and Recommendations which is now open for public review. 

How will my input make a difference? 

Your input on the  Draft Yukon Mineral Development Strategy and Recommendations will help guide the independent panel in the development of their recommendations.

The panel’s final recommendations will be submitted to Yukon First Nations and the Government of Yukon for consideration and possible implementation.
