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.
