Yukon Mineral Development Strategy
How do I participate?
From January to May, 2020, you are invited to share your thoughts on the future of mineral development in the Yukon via surveys, written submissions and several in-person engagement options.
The Panel will release a “What We Heard” report in July 2020. This report will be used to inform the Panel’s draft recommendations. Because it is important that the Panel’s recommendations be well-considered, the Panel will share the Draft Recommendations for a period of public comment. The public comment period for the Draft Recommendations will run from September until December 2020.

What is this engagement about?
The Government of Yukon and the 11 Self-Governing Yukon First Nations are committed to the long-term responsible management of Yukon’s mineral resources and to supporting a healthy mining industry that adheres to high environmental and social standards. We need your guidance on how to make that happen.
How will my input make a difference?
An independent panel has been established to lead a public engagement process that will result in recommendations for a Yukon Minerals Development Strategy.
Your input will help guide the Panel in the development of those recommendations. The Panel’s final recommendations will be submitted to Yukon First Nations and the Government of Yukon for consideration and possible implementation.
