Learn more about Yukon’s Journey to First Nation Self-Government

Since 1995, 11 of Yukon’s First Nations have become self-governing, and account for more than half of self-governing First Nations in Canada.  The Mapping the Way campaign celebrates and raises awareness about Yukon First Nation land claims and self-government.

The Implementation Working Group has launched a new online resource that tells the story of Yukon’s Journey to First Nations Self-Government Agreements through video, audio and photos.
