The Umbrella Final Agreement (UFA) changed the social and political structure of Yukon by making provisions for First Nation land ownership and self-determination, and by creating an environment and infrastructure for community-based resource management.
Chapter 16 of the UFA and Yukon Final Agreements recognizes the Yukon Fish and Wildlife Management Board (YFWMB) as “the primary instrument for Fish and Wildlife Management in the Yukon”.
The YFWMB is an advisory body comprised of 12 members appointed by the Minister of Environment from six nominations by the Council of Yukon First Nations (CYFN) and six nominations by the Government of Yukon (YG).
With a mandate to address issues that affect all of Yukon, the YFWMB focuses on policies and legislation for sustainable fish, wildlife, and habitat management. The board consolidates the best available technical, traditional, and local knowledge through public participation, to make recommendations on management decisions to First Nations, territorial, and federal governments.
