We are the government’s main point of contact on matters relating to the Yukon Environmental and Socio-economic Assessment Act (YESAA). This federal legislation guides assessment of proposed projects in the Yukon. We work with other governments and departments to ensure that decision making on projects meets present and future needs. Our vision is a sustainable Yukon built on strong partnerships, solid relationships and open communication. We help government departments fulfil their responsibilities under YESAA and represent government as the decision body on major projects.
