The Yukon Fish and Wildlife Management Board (the Board) was created within Chapter 16 of the Umbrella Final Agreement (the UFA), which is the overarching template for land claims agreements made for, by, and between all Yukon people.

Section 16.7.1 of the UFA empowers the Board to be “… the primary instrument of Fish and Wildlife Management in the Yukon.” The Board is comprised of twelve members, six appointed by First Nations and six by government.

Next meeting: April 16-18, 2024

“We will be the primary instrument that promotes sustainability and stewardship in the management of fish, wildlife, and habitat on behalf of all Yukon people.”
