Peel Watershed

The Peel Watershed Regional Land Use Plan was produced by the Peel Watershed Planning Commission. The Plan was approved in 2019 by:

  • Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in First Nation,
  • First Nation of Na-Cho Nyäk Dun,
  • Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation,
  • Gwich’in Tribal Council, and
  • Yukon Government.

These five governments have established the Peel Plan Implementation Committee (PPIC). There is no longer a Commission in place. To see what has been done with the Plan, see our progress report!

YLUPC has been providing opinions as to whether or not proposed projects in the region are consistent with the Final Recommended Plan since the Peel Watershed Planning Commission is no longer in place. For more information on consistency opinions in the Peel Watershed region click here.

80% of the region is made up of conservation areas, including Special Management Areas and Wilderness Areas.

20% of the region is Integrated Management Areas. A new set of standard terms and conditions for projects have been developed and are available here.
