Legislation

The Yukon Development Corporation Act mandates the Yukon Development Corporation to:

  • promote the development of Yukon resources on an economic and efficient basis;
  • promote employment and business opportunities for Yukon residents;
  • assure a continuing and adequate supply of energy in a manner consistent with sustainable development; and
  • carry out development policy directives issued to it by Yukon cabinet.

Order-in-Council 1993/107 restricted the Corporation’s role to energy-related activities designed to promote the economic development of Yukon.
