How do I participate?

Complete a short online survey
This survey will close on August 31, 2019. 
Participate in an online discussion with Yukoners
Fill out a detailed questionnaire
The Independent Expert Panel, made up of Yukoners and health systems experts from outside the territory, wants to hear from you about what recommendations they can make regarding changes and improvements to the health and social programs and services available in Yukon.
Working together, we have to figure out how we can better allocate our existing resources (people and money), improve services, make things more efficient and find creative solutions to meet our needs today and tomorrow. To do that, the panel needs to hear from Yukoners about their experiences using our health and social services system.

What is this engagement about?

In November 2018, an Independent Expert Panel was appointed to conduct a review, with the Government of Yukon providing secretariat support.

We are looking at how we can make changes to Yukon’s health and social services programs and services. We want to talk to you about how we can do all of these things:

  • Improve the quality of health and wellness of Yukoners.
  • Ensure patients, clients and providers have positive experiences.
  • Provide good value for money.

How will my input make a difference?

The Independent Expert Panel will prepare a summary of what they heard and learned through this engagement, their meetings with partners and stakeholders, and research. The summary will be shared with Yukoners in fall 2019, and this October and November Yukoners will  be invited to tell the panel whether you think they are on track.
After the second round of public engagement, the Panel will prepare a draft report with recommendations for the government by December 2019 and a final report by March 2020.

Where can I find results?

The results of this first round of engagement will be posted on this site in fall 2019.
