Find out about our programs here, from mining and energy to free guided hikes.
We promote energy conservation and efficiency to reduce energy use and waste. We believe that instead of developing a Yukon oil and gas industry, the Yukon must replace imported fossil fuels with local, low-impact renewable energy sources for thriving, resilient communities.
In the future we envision, mining in the Yukon occurs only in places where such activities are ecologically and culturally acceptable. Where mining occurs, it will be based on need for the metal, on sound economics, and it will be done in a way that ensures that perpetual treatment is not necessary. Abandoned mine sites will be cleaned up.
Land use planning is critical in the Yukon. It is a collaborative way that the Yukon people can use social, environmental, economic and cultural information and knowledge to collectively determine what and how land should be protected, developed and managed in the territory.
We work to ensure that Yukon's fish and wildlife have safe habitat and healthy populations, despite pressures from human development. We supoprt humane, sustainable and responsible harvesting.
We believe in getting people outside to connect with nature. We offer free, fun interpretive programming for all ages throughout the summer at Whitehorse parks - from guided hikes to Kids' Ed-Ventures.
