What is this engagement about?

The Government of Yukon is developing a 10-year plan to guide future investments in the Yukon aviation system.  This strategy will propose strategic investments to maintain safety, meet national aviation regulations, and enhance the future system. All investments will be considered for their social, economic, and environmental impact.

Yukon’s airports, aerodromes and airstrips are vital to life north of 60. Aviation brings friends and family together, supports Yukon businesses, enables the delivery of vital emergency services and connects Yukon communities.

We need to understand your expectations and future needs for the Yukon aviation system.

Yukon’s aviation system is comprised of 28 airports, aerodromes and airstrips, along with all related infrastructure and services. 

  • An airport has regularly scheduled flights and supports a variety of public services, such as medevac, wildland fire management, and policing services. 
  • An aerodrome does not have regularly scheduled flights, but does support a variety of public services. 
  • An airstrip is a runway maintained for takeoff and landing of aircraft with no other permanent infrastructure at the site.

How will my input make a difference?

Your opinion matters. This survey is intended to gain an understanding of airport, aerodrome and airstrip users’ values, expectations, and future needs.

The feedback we receive will be used to identify future priorities.
