Welcome to Yukon Land Use Planning Council

The Yukon Land Use Planning Council helps Government, Yukon First Nations and Regional Planning Commissions coordinate their efforts to conduct regional land use planning. This planning is necessary to resolve land use and resource conflicts within Yukon's regions. The plans ensure that use of lands and resources is consistent with social, cultural, economic and environmental values. These plans will build upon the traditional knowledge and experience of the residents of each region.



Our Planning Atlas is down until further notice

Due to hardware problems starting August 2014, the Atlas will not be available until further notice. We will take this opportunity to explore how best to serve our data.

Any comments, complaints, or suggestions are welcome. Just send us an email or call 867-667-7397.

If you wish to explore a small selection of our data, Spatial Data and other downloads can be found in the documents section or on our ftp site.


"Planning for Success" Workshop Proceedings

On January 21-22nd, the Council host a workshop on Yukon's Common Land Use Planning Process (CLUPP). This workshop had two broad purposes:

  • To consider potential improvements to the process by which regional plans are produced through the implementation of Chapter 11 of the Yukon First Nations Final Agreements;
  • To develop the path forward that will lead to the completion of regional plans in the remaining planning regions.

The proceedings are posted here. These include presentations, an overall summary, and notes from the break-out groups.


YLUPC Attends Summer Assemblies

During the Summer months, members of the Yukon Land Use Planning Council and staff are attending a few assemblies around the Yukon, including:  The Renewable Resources Councils Annual General Workshop (May 1st, 2014) in Whitehorse, and Northern Tutchone Gathering (May 21, 2014) in Pelly Crossing. and the General Assemblies for the Council for Yukon First Nations (June 24th, 2014) at the Dä Kų Cultural Centre in Haines Junction, and for the Champagne Aishihik First Nations (July 18, 2014) at Klukshu.


Another Case Study of the Peel Process

Nick Grzybowski, a former intern at the Council, recently completed his masters thesis which captured the knowledge and experience of of those involved in the Peel Watershed planning process. Congratulations and good luck Nick! His thesis is available here. Nick's recent radio interview with CBC can be heard here.

Nick used the Council's office and resources while researching much of his thesis. However, links to this article are provided here to foster discussion of regional planning processes, and does not necessarily reflect the views of the Yukon Land Use Planning Council.

From the Executive Summary:

The objectives of this report are to capture the knowledge and experience of those involved in the Peel Watershed planning process that took place between 2002 and 2014. Gathering this knowledge will contribute to improving the planning process in the Yukon, where past successes and challenges inform improved future applications or applications in other jurisdictions.

In the short term, this report is intended to contribute to the successful completion of regional land use plans in the Yukon, which in the long run may provide greater certainty for a multitude of users and reduce the prevalence of land use conflicts. The study has been designed to assist the Council in reviewing the Peel Watershed planning process and addresses the following research questions:
How do participants of the Peel Watershed planning process describe their experiences during the planning process?


Dawson Alternatives Feedback

The Dawson Regional Planning Commission has just wrapped up the public consultation on their Plan Alternatives. After several months of working with the Yukon,Tr'ondëk Hwëch'in and Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation Governments and stakeholders, the Commission produced five plan alternatives that sketch out different possible directions the Draft Plan may take. After the review period ended on March 2, 2014, the Commission will now consider all the feedback and start to develop a Draft Plan that will likely be based on one or more alternatives. The staff of the Yukon Land Use Planning Council contributed analytical and administrative support to this project.

The Commission held public meetings  in Whitehorse on February 7, and in Dawson on February 12, 2014. These events were a combination of open-house and presentations with an opportunity for public questions and comments. Over 30 people attended each event!Open-house discussions with Chair Scott Castleman (R)Public presentation in Whitehorse
