  • All community open houses have been postponed until public health officials deem it safe to host public events. We will announce the new dates as they are scheduled.
  • All public presentations to the Panel are postponed. If you would like to make an online presentation to the Panel, we encourage you to register today. We will notify when presentation dates are identified. Alternatively, we invite you to make a video, audio, or written submission.
  • We have added at toll-free line where you can share your thoughts with the Panel. The toll-free number is: 1-877-321-1233.

Our online participation options remain active and available. This includes the online surveyonline discussion forum, and written, audio, and video submissions to the Panel.

We remain committed to ensuring that the Yukon Mineral Development Strategy process is one that works for Yukoners. Thank you for your understanding as we adapt to a rapidly evolving situation.


Yukon Self-Governing First Nations and Government of Yukon 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.
