Yukon government and First Nations work collaboratively to advance a number of shared priorities.
Implementation of the Final and Self-Government Agreements is about bringing the agreements to life by fulfilling the obligations outlined in the agreements. Yukon government is committed to working with Self-Governing First Nations, Government of Canada, and the Council of Yukon First Nations to implement the Final and Self-Government Agreements. Implementation is an ongoing process that includes:
Yukon participates in the Implementation Working Group which monitors, evaluates and provides guidance regarding the fulfillment of obligations of the Yukon First Nation Final and Self-government Agreements. It is made up of implementation representatives from the 11 Self-Governing First Nations, Government of Yukon, Government of Canada and the Council of Yukon First Nations.
The Implementation Working Group’s communications sub-group manages the Mapping the Way campaign which celebrates and raises awareness about Yukon First Nation land claims and self-government.
The Yukon Forum was created in 2005, under the Cooperation in Governance Act, to formalize the government-to-government relationship between the Government of Yukon and Yukon First Nations. Yukon Forum provides an opportunity to discuss and determine common priorities and opportunities for co-operation and collaboration. The most recent Yukon Forum was January 13, 2017.
