Natural Gas and Fracking

Hydraulic fracturing or 'fracking' has never taken place in the Yukon and YCS is actively working to ensure it never does. The Select Committee on the Risks and Benefits of Hydraulic Fracturing (2013/2014) made a series of recommendations which, compounded with economic, climate and environmental realities mean that fracking is very unlikely ever to occur here.

Since then, Yukon government has put a moratorium on hydraulic fracturing, however a permanent ban has not been implemented.
