A Recommended Plan for the Dawson Region was produced by the Dawson Regional Planning Commission and delivered to the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in First Nation Government and Yukon Government in June 2022.

The plan recommends Special Management Areas (protected areas), caribou and wetlands stewardship areas, integrated stewardship areas, and three areas for future sub-regional planning.

In collaboration with the Commission, we developed an interactive map to help with interpretation of the plan.

The plan is now in the approval process. The two Governments conducted a joint public engagement on the plan in fall of 2022 and later published their What We Heard report. Since then, they discussed both between and within their organizations whether each Party will accept or reject the plan or propose modifications (in accordance with 11.6 of the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in Final Agreement). On April 30th, 2024, the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in Government provided a comprehensive package of proposed modifications to the Dawson Regional Planning Commission. Next, the Commission will consider these proposed modifications, and those yet to be provided by the Yukon Government, and will offer a Final Recommended Plan to the Parties.
