A re-elected Yukon Liberal government will implement Our Clean Future, the Yukon’s climate change, energy and green economy strategy. The strategy was developed in partnership with Yukon First Nations, municipalities and transboundary Indigenous groups. It identifies 131 actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 30%, increase renewable energy capacity, adapt to climate change and create economic opportunities for Yukon companies to be part of the green economy.

Since 2016, Yukon has seen economic growth every year, our unemployment has frequently been the lowest in the country, and retail sales have increased significantly.Read more
