Rural land management and development services consolidated
April 1, 2014
All new land development initiatives outside the Whitehorse city limits are now coordinated by Energy, Mines & Resources' Land Management branch. Previously, rural land development was managed by the Department of Community Services.
“All communities outside Whitehorse – incorporated and unincorporated – will now be working solely with EMR for their land management needs,” Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources Scott Kent said. “This consolidation enhances the efficiency of land development services to rural Yukon.”
