  • General Terms of Reference, including timeframes, for each regional land use planning commission

  • the boundary of each planning region

  • other matters that governments and each affected Yukon First Nation may agree

The YLUPC will assist the Commission by providing orientation and training to Commission members; reviewing and recommending annual workplans and budgets; providing human resource and financial administration support; and participating on the Technical Working Group and Senior Liaison Committee (as requested).
