Yukon First Nations

Yukon First Nations have rights in relation to water that are set out in Final Agreements.

These include use and protection of water on Settlement Lands, and use of water in Yukon for trapping, non-commercial harvesting, and traditional heritage, cultural, and spiritual purposes. In addition, the Council of Yukon First Nations nominates one-third of the members of the Yukon Water Board. Many First Nations own and operate their own drinking water systems.
