With the purpose of developing Yukon-specific knowledge in response to the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls in Canada (“MMIWG”) Calls for Justice, YESAB issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) in April 2021 to conduct an Evaluation of the effects of industrial activities on the personal safety of Indigenous and non-Indigenous women and girls and LGBTQ2S+ persons in Yukon (the study).
The primary objective of the study was to develop a comprehensive research report and assessment tool that would assist YESAB assessors in following key areas:
- Identify the pathway(s) to adverse effects of industrial activities to the personal safety of Indigenous and non-Indigenous women and girls and LGBTQ2S+ persons (Affected Persons) in Yukon communities and within the industrial workplace;
- Better understand the cause-and-effect relationships of industrial activities on the personal safety of Affected Persons;
- Evaluate the effectiveness of the recently recommended terms and conditions to mitigate the adverse effects of industrial activities on personal safety; and
- Provide current Yukon-specific information to inform future assessments.
The study was completed in September 2022. YESAB recognizes that further work both internally and externally is needed to implement the study’s recommendations.
