Bill S-6, the Yukon and Nunavut Regulatory Improvement Act, has received Royal Assent and is now law.

Many of the operational amendments within Bill S-6 are administrative in nature and will not have immediate significant effects on proponents moving through the assessment process.

There is no ‘new’ YESAA process.  Proponents of Designated Office level projects will not see any immediate significant change to the assessment process.

Moving forward, YESAB will work to adapt the current assessment framework and the Board’s Rules to reflect the amendments.

If proponents or other participants have questions about the YESAA 2015, we recommend they speak directly to our assessment staff.
