Flight Path engagement takes off

Yukoners are being given an opportunity to guide how we invest in the territory’s aviation system. The public engagement launching today will help inform Flight Path, a 10-year investment strategy, on how we prioritize and invest in Yukon’s aviation system.

A 90-day survey and community meetings throughout the territory will give participants a chance to share their views on how our aviation system can be improved.

Our Liberal government is proud of the investments we’ve made in aviation infrastructure over the last three years. We encourage Yukoners to make their voices heard on this vital industry and help steer its direction for the next decade.

Minister of Highways and Public Works Richard Mostyn
