Beaver River Land Use Plan

The Government of Yukon and First Nation of Na-Cho Nyäk Dun have agreed to prepare a land use plan for the Beaver River watershed. A planning committee consisting of
2 Na-Cho Nyäk Dun delegates and 2 Yukon government delegates has been formed to guide the planning process. 

The planning committee is currently gathering information about the planning area.

Providing information on the planning area

The Beaver River Land Use Planning Committee is asking for all submissions that are part of the information gathering stage of the plan to be sent in by May 17, 2019, so we can finalize and distribute a what we heard document.

Correspondence received after that date will be considered but may not be reflected in the what we heard document.

There will be additional opportunities for community engagement as the planning process moves forward. Please visit this web page periodically for updates.

How to provide information

If you wish to provide information on the planning area, you can send an email, with the subject line of "Beaver River Land Use Plan" to   AND 

Please answer the following questions:

  1. What do you see as the important values of the planning area?

  2. Is there any specific information about the planning area and the proposed route for the tote road that you think the planning committee should know about? Possible topics include land, water, fish and wildlife, heritage areas and areas of special interest.

There will be further engagement in the coming months with Na-Cho Nyäk Dun citizens, residents of the Na-Cho Nyäk Dun Traditional Territory including Mayo, Stewart Crossing and Keno City, interested parties and the Yukon public.
