Regulating resource roads

Consultation on the development of a resource roads regulation finished on July 23, 2018. We are currently working on compiling comments into a summary document. Once finished you will be able to find it on the engagement webpage. The next phase will be the drafting and approval of the regulation, which we expect to be completed in 2019.

If you have questions about the development of a Resource Road Regulation, please contact Mike Draper at 867.667.3185 or toll-free 1.800.661.0408 ext. 3185 or email michael.draper@gov.yk.ca.
