The Lands and Resources Department wishes to keep citizens informed and facilitate communication about projects and developments in Traditional Territory. This section is meant to provide brief information about current projects and developments going through assessment under the Yukon Environmental and Socioeconomic Assessment Board (YESAB). Please find a brief summary of projects currently in the “seeking views” stage of assessment. 

Information/views/opinions/questions should be directed either to our Lands and Resources Department or to the local YESAB Designated Office (see contact below). No online posts or comments will be considered.

Contact us because…

1)      You have questions about the project or want more information;

2)      You would like to submit your own personal comments to YESAB about a project but need assistance;

3)      You have specific concerns or information about the project area or about values that might be affected by the project that you would like NND to consider when we submit comments,

Please contact our Environmental Assessment Officer, Stephan Walke

( 867-996-2265 ext. 152

In particular, consider the following questions:

1. What is important to you in the proposed project area?

2. How do you think those valued components would be affected or impacted by the proposed project?

3. Do you have any suggestions for how the effects you have identified could be reduced or eliminated?1
