The RAR examines renewable and non-renewable resources on Settlement and Non-Settlement Land within the planning region. Resource descriptions are drawn from information contributed by Yukon and First Nation government departments, from the knowledge and experience of Yukon Indian People and other residents of the planning region, as well as from other authoritative sources documented at the end of each section.

This document represents the knowledge base that the Commission will draw upon during the land use planning process. The RAR will provide the basis for analysis of plan alternatives in subsequent stages of the Dawson planning process.
