New Ta’an Kwach’an settlement lands around the south end of Lake Laberge, where First Nation permission is now required to hunt, are shown in the booklet for the first time. Hunters will also read about a new conservation tool being promoted by Environment Yukon this year. The Nacho Nyak Dun and Selkirk First Nations have partnered with the department and the Mayo District Renewable Resources Council to encourage voluntary no-hunting of the Ethel Lake Caribou Herd. It’s a new approach Yukon hunters have been suggesting for some time. Hunters have also asked Environment Yukon to make greater use of their knowledge in managing wildlife.

That’s why this year’s booklet includes a tear-off report form (page 35) that sheep hunters can use to keep track of the number of lambs they see while hunting this fall. With these reports in hand, biologists will be better able to predict sheep population trends. Finally, the booklet gives notice of two important changes coming up next year. The minimum qualifying age for a big game hunting licence will be lowered from 14 to 12 years of age, and mandatory hunter education for first-time hunters will come into effect next spring. Copies of the booklet are available now at Environment Yukon offices, territorial agents and vendors who sell hunting licenses. WHITEHORSE – Health and Social Services Minister Sue Edelman was one of 14 health ministers to release a jurisdictional report on a common set of health indicators today.
The Report to Yukoners on Comparable Health and Health System Indicators provides Yukoners with information on selected aspects of the health of Yukoners and on the performance and delivery of some health programs and services in the territory. Today’s release of the report fulfills a commitment made by Premier Pat Duncan and other federal, provincial and territorial leaders during a First Ministers’ Meeting on health care in September 2000.
At that time, government leaders agreed to issue public reports on population health and health service delivery, beginning in September 2002. Fourteen areas were identified for comparable reporting, including life expectancy, self-reported health, patient satisfaction, access to first contact health services, health promotion and disease prevention. Premiers also agreed that each report would be subject to independent, third-party verification.
