The Government of Yukon, Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in, the First Nation of Na-Cho Nyäk Dun, Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation and Gwich’in Tribal Council (the parties) are collaborating to finalize, approve and implement the Peel Watershed Regional Land Use Plan.
The parties would like to thank everyone in the affected communities for their participation in the consultation, which ran from September 27 to November 19, 2018.
Through community meetings, stakeholder sessions, an online questionnaire, and website, over 2,000 responses were received. A summary report is available at finishthepeelplan.ca/engage
Consultation between the parties is underway to reach a consensus on a final plan.
What was this engagement about?
Guided by the Supreme Court of Canada decision, the five parties are working collaboratively to complete, approve and implement a Regional Land Use Plan for the Peel Watershed that reflects the objectives of the Final Agreements. The first step is this final round of community engagement, which has two objectives:
- All Yukoners and stakeholders will have the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the Final Recommended Plan and suggest possible minor modifications to improve the Plan given changing circumstances.
- The affected governments will receive informed advice on changing circumstances in the Peel watershed and suggestions for minor modifications focussed on improving and operationalizing the final recommended plan.
After this consultation is complete, the parties will consult with each other. The goal of this consultation is to achieve a shared position on the plan. Then the parties will work together to approve and implement a Final Regional Land Use Plan for the Peel Watershed.
How will my input make a difference?
Within the parameters set out by the Supreme Court of Canada, which calls for only minor modifications, we are looking for parts of the Final Recommended Plan that may need to be changed or updated.
