The CTRRC is the local management body for fish, wildlife and forestry in the Carcross Tagish First Nation Settlement area. The Council is your voice in managing local renewable resources. We provide strong input into planning and regulation processes by raising public awareness of specific issues and by providing local and traditional information. The Council also plays an important advisory role to territorial, federal and First Nations governments and the Yukon Fish & Wildlife Management Board. The CTRRC is comprised of 8 Council members including 2 alternate members. Three members and 1 alternate are each nominated by the First Nation and the Yukon Government.
The Carcross Tagish Renewable Resource Council (CTRRC) strives to be the voice for the residents within the Carcross Tagish First Nation (CTFN) Traditional Territory (TT) in managing our renewable resources, such as fish, wildlife and forests.
