In November of 1998, the federal government transferred responsibility for oil and gas to Yukon. The Yukon Oil and Gas Act 468 KB came into effect at that time.
The process of amending the Oil and Gas Act has been completed, and the Act to Amend the Oil and Gas Act, 2012 152 KB was assented to on December 13, 2012. The public consultation period took place in 2009. The Oil and Gas Resources Branch would like to thank all those who provided input during the consultation period. To learn more about the amendments and to view consultation submissions, visit the Oil and Gas Resources consultation web page.
