Yukon Planning Regions

The Yukon Government, the Tr'ondëk Hwëch'in, and the YLUPC re-established a regional planning process around Dawson City. This new Commission will begin work in spring 2019 with the aim to deliver a regional plan.

A previous Commission for this region worked through the early stages of planning. That process was suspended while the commission was developing a Draft Plan.

In consultation with Yukon Government, the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in, Nacho Nyäk Dun and the Vuntut Gwitchin First Nations, the Yukon Land Use Planning Council has produced a “Terms of Reference” for the Dawson Regional Planning Commission. This document is the first step towards producing a regional plan for the Dawson Planning Region and represents the “marching orders” for the Commission. It has been agreed to by the Yukon Government, the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in and the Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation. The commission's interim website can be found here.
