Off-road vehicle regulation consultation

The Government of Yukon is continuing its off-road vehicle consultation, with a 60-day public review beginning the week of April 20. A discussion document for review and comment will be posted online in the coming days. It is anticipated that the review of the draft regulations will be completed in the fall of this year.

Commercial Energy Incentive Program

This new incentive program directly assists Yukon apartment and condominium owners in retrofitting their buildings to improve energy performance and reduce energy consumption, costs and emissions. A second component of the program targets the overall lighting efficiency of commercial and institutional buildings by encouraging building owners to upgrade to energy efficient and long lasting LED lighting systems.

The new program will come into effect on May 1, 2015.
