The Secretariat was responsible for undertaking meaningful information and consultation sessions with First Nations, mandated boards, stakeholders, other interested parties, and the public.

Teslin consultation meeting, September 2006The Purpose of the consultation was:

  • To ensure that First Nations, mandated boards, stakeholders and other interested parties, and the public were provided with information about the differences between the existing Yukon Placer Authorization (YPA) and the Fish Habitat Management System.
  • To ensure that information on the System was available in various formats and at various levels of complexity.
  • To ensure that First Nations, mandated boards, stakeholders and other interested parties, and the public had an opportunity to provide input on the Fish Habitat Management System before its implementation
  • To ensure that the placer industry was informed and could provide input on the potential changes to permitting, licensing and operating their placer operations.

At the conclusion of the consultation, the Secretariat compiled and made public a report on the proceedings.  This included a summary of what input was provided, what input was and was not incorporated, and why.  Consultation is continuing in order to develop authorizations for the Mayo, Alsek and Liard River watersheds.
