Dawson Regional Planning Commission

On June 10th, 2022, the Dawson Regional Planning Commission provided the Recommended Plan for the Dawson Region to the Parties at a small event in Dawson City. The handover ceremony marked the first step in the Land Use Plan Approval Process as set out in Chapter 11 of the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in Final Agreement.

On September 7, 2022, the Parties released the Recommended Plan to the public and launched a new website (onthelandwewalktogether.ca). They announced that the dates for engagement on the Recommended Plan will be from September 19 -November 20, 2022. You can read the news release here.


On the website you will find the following documents:

·         The full version of the Recommended Plan

·         Summary of the Recommended Plan

·         Recommended Plan Highlights

You can also find out about engagement activities, the survey, sign up for updates, and learn more about the planning process.

The Commission is pleased that the Recommended Plan consultation process is underway, and we look forward to supporting the Parties’ engagement activities. We encourage everyone to review the plan and provide their input to the parties.

The Dawson and Whitehorse DRPC offices are open to the public and we are available to answer questions about the context and intent of the Recommended Plan. Please feel free to visit or connect with us via email or phone.
