Canada | Final management plan agreed upon for large wilderness watershed area in Yukon

It has taken more than 15 years of consultations, protests, court battles and more consultations — and now a final plan for the future of the vast expanse of Yukon wilderness known as the Peel Watershed has been set. 


The Peel Watershed Regional Land Use Plan was signed Thursday afternoon on the bank of the Stewart River in Mayo, Yukon. It was signed by the Yukon government and the Yukon First Nations of Na-Cho Nyäk Dun, Tr'ondek Hwëch'in and Vuntut Gwitchin, as well as the Gwich'in Tribal Council of the Northwest Territories.
