The Committee

What is a Joint Planning Committee?

A Joint Planning Committee (JPC) has been appointed to coordinate the planning process and prepare and recommend a Forest Resources Management Plan (FRMP). The Whitehorse and Southern Lakes FRMP is being prepared collaboratively by four governments; the Carcross / Tagish First Nation, the Kwanlin Dün First Nation, the Ta’an Kwäch’än Council and Yukon Government. Each government has appointed one representative to the JPC.

Coordinating with other parties

The JPC is following the established Terms of Reference, which provides guidance on the types of issues to consider and the process for consultation with other agencies, stakeholders, and the public. The JPC will be collecting the views and values of the region’s residents, First Nations citizens, and the public through public meetings, feedback through websites, and other forms of consultation.
Consultation will occur early in the process and during key stages of planning, to ensure that a wide range of perspectives on the region’s forest management will be considered in developing the plan.
Do you have a particular forest management value or interest you would like the JPC to know about?

Please submit your comments to the JPC via email.
