Eleven remote recreational lots to be sold by lottery this summer

WHITEHORSE—A Government of Yukon lottery for 11 remote access recreational lots at Dutch Harbour on Kluane Lake will be held on August 4.

“The creation of these lots is the result of our excellent working relationship with the Kluane First Nation and our commitment to make land available to Yukoners,” Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources Scott Kent said. “One lot on Bennett Lake and one lot on Tagish Lake will also be available through this lottery.”

The Yukon government signed an economic development agreement with the Kluane First Nation in 2015, in support of sustainable growth and economic development opportunities for the Burwash Landing community and surrounding area, including new cottage lots.

“We are excited for the opportunity to have fellow Yukoners become fellow Kluane Lakers,” Kluane First Nation Chief Mathieya Alatini‎ said.

The lots on Bennett and Tagish lakes are the result of an economic development agreement with the Carcross/Tagish First Nation and are remaining from the 20 lots that were offered in the August 2014 lottery.

The one acre, water access only lots are open for viewing by the Yukon public. The deadline for applications is August 2.

Maps and lottery information packages and application forms are available from the Energy, Mines and Resources Land Management Branch, third floor, Room 320 Elijah Smith Building in Whitehorse and from the department’s website.
