Looking for input on the Legal Profession Act prior to updating (August 18 to September 7)

The government is seeking the views of lawyers, legal organizations and the business community and members of the general public are also encouraged to submit their opinions.

The existing Act is no longer current with changes to the regulation of the legal profession in other Canadian jurisdictions and further flexibility is required to deal with the evolution of the profession over the last 20 years.

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.


Seeking public opinion on the Pounds Act (closed, results pending)The government is seeking public input regarding any or all of the following amendments to the Pounds Act:

  • A new definition of "animal."
  • Who can capture and contain animals and enforce the Pounds Act.
  • Eliminating Yukon pounds districts and boundaries.
  • Updating penalty options.
  • New methods for identifying impounded animals.

Please note that the Pounds Act does not include the care of domestic animals such as cats and dogs.

The Financial Advisory Panel was created to engage Yukoners. We want to work together to come up with options for how to deal with these financial challenges. The Panel would like feedback from the public on how the government can deliver on its priorities, meet the needs of Yukoners and return the territory to a healthy financial position.

The Panel is independent of government and will operate for a limited period of time with the support of the Department of Finance.

Proposed change for campground regulations and results

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.
