2015 Yukon Grazing Policy

On March 10, 2015, the new 2015 Yukon Grazing Policy and regulations came into effect.

The approved changes reflect that in the past two decades, the Yukon agriculture industry has grown and that local area plans and other government policies and legislation that affect grazing have changed. The changes to the 2015 Yukon Grazing Policy and regulations will improve administration of grazing agreements and help ensure that suitable lands are made available for grazing agreements.
