How to submit comments on active projects:

YESAB (Yukon Environmental and Socio-economic Assessment Board) provides a convenient online platform,, where you can access project information, search for projects of interest, and seamlessly submit your comments. The YESAB Online Registry (YOR) offers you an advanced search function, allowing you to filter projects based on specific criteria such as location, assessment type, and proponent name.

To actively engage in the assessment process via the YOR, all you need to do is create a profile. With this profile, you gain easy access to project details and can submit your comments. Additionally, you can choose to stay updated on projects of interest by selecting the ‘Follow’ button on the YOR.

But that’s not all; if you prefer traditional modes of communication, you can still voice your opinions. YESAB offices welcome comments via phone, mail, or email. Alternatively, you can visit one of the seven YESAB offices across the Yukon.

Your participation matters. Your comments hold weight. Take this opportunity to shape the projects that will shape our communities. Let your voice be heard.
