Yukon Land Use Planning Council

The Yukon Land Use Planning Council (YLUPC) advocates land use planning as a comprehensive means of addressing cultural, social, economic and environmental sustainability. The YLUPC promotes an open, fair and public process carried out by all Yukoners, as set out in Yukon First Nation Final Agreements.

The Yukon Land Use Planning Council makes recommendations to government and each affected Yukon First Nation with respect to land use planning as defined in Chapter 11 of the Umbrella Final Agreement.

The YLUPC makes recommendations relating to:

  • land use planning, including policies, goals and priorities in the Yukon

  • identification of planning regions and priorities for the preparation of regional land use plans

  • General Terms of Reference, including timeframes, for each regional land use planning commission

  • the boundary of each planning region

  • other matters that governments and each affected Yukon First Nation may agree

The YLUPC reviews the budgets of the planning commissions and proposes these budgets to government. The Council also assists the commissions directly through logistics and technical support.
