The members of the Yukon Land Use Planning Council held two sessions in late 2014 and early 2015 to discuss the strategic direction for the organization. While the council is strongly supported by an experienced secretariat, the council is fairly “young” with two members having been on the council for less than 2 years and the other member only recently appointed in June 2014. Effort was taken to understand the purpose, intent, role, challenges and future for the organization.

Yukon Planning Regions as of January 2013

The Yukon Land Use Planning Council helps Government, Yukon First Nations and Regional Planning Commissions coordinate their efforts to conduct regional land use planning. This planning is necessary to resolve land use and resource conflicts within Yukon's regions. The plans ensure that use of lands and resources is consistent with social, cultural, economic and environmental values. These plans will build upon the traditional knowledge and experience of the residents of each region.

Regional land use plans make recommendations for the use of land, water and other renewable and non-renewable resources. Governments and First Nations must adhere to these regional plans when authorizing use of land and resources.

Whether you are a prospector or a planner, we hope you will find useful information here about land use planning in the North. We encourage you to explore this site, and follow links to other helpful and informative sites.
