Government of Yukon public engagements and how to get involved.

Visit YESAB and Yukon Water Board for more ways to share your views.


Seeking public opinion on missing persons legislation (July 4 to September 11)

The government is seeking public input on what should be included and what is important to Yukoners, when considering new missing persons legislation.

At this time, the RCMP is limited in the activities they can perform and the tools they can use during a search for a missing person unless there is evidence of criminal activity. New territorial legislation would help police access vital personal information to advance the investigation, while still protecting a person’s right to privacy.

Results from the government communications survey report (May 2017)

Thank you to those who participated in our online and phone survey about information and government communications! This information will be used to help the Government of Yukon better share important information to Yukoners and improve the way we engage with the public.

The survey was conducted online and by phone, and asked Yukoners where they go to find information, what Yukon government campaigns they remember seeing, what media outlets they use, and how they prefer to be engaged by the government.

Proposed change for campground regulations, results and new survey (May 11 to July 10)

The results of the 2016 campground survey are now publicly available, and have found that a key concern of campers is people holding campsites when the campsites are not actually being used. Campers asked for clear rules, fair access and enforcement of the rules.

Based on the survey results, the Government of Yukon is proposing to change the Regulation in the Parks and Land Certainty Act to limit the time campsites may be left unoccupied and increase the fine for not adhering to this rule.

Invitation for public comments on draft pharmacist and rural permit holder legislation (April 21 to July 21)

From April 21 to July 21, 2017, the Government of Yukon is seeking public feedback on the draft regulation for pharmacists, draft standards of practice for pharmacists and rural permit holders, and a draft code of ethics.

This legislation under the Health Professions Act will create a more modern regulatory system for pharmacists that consists of an expanded scope of practice, standards of practice and a code of ethics. It also introduces a regulatory model for rural permit holders, who are physicians licensed to dispense medication where pharmacies and pharmacists are not available. Rural permit holders will have their own standards of practice and be included in the code of ethics. This brings Yukon in line with national and industry standards.
