Access to practical tools & resources to help Canadians better understand and conserve wetlands.
YESAB was established under the Yukon Environmental and Socio-economic Assessment Act (YESAA), which came into full force November 28, 2005. YESAA. The Act sets out a process to assess the environmental and socio-economic effects of projects and other activities in the Yukon or that might affect the Yukon. This is a requirement of Chapter 12 of the Umbrella Final Agreement and Yukon First Nations’ Final Agreements. Two Regulations accompany the Act and YESAB has developed Rules that set out in detail how the assessment process works.
