February 24, 2014. This page is being updated so will be changing a lot over the next while.

The page will be a bit disorganized as I figure out what exists, and how best to present it from a walking perspective.

Understanding the Umbrella Final Agreement

2. Public access to settlement land The public has a general right of access, without the consent of the affected Yukon First Nation, to enter, cross and stay on Undeveloped Settlement Land for a reasonable period of time for all non-commercial recreational purposes.

The public also has a general right, without the consent of the affected Yukon First Nation, to enter, cross and make necessary stops on Undeveloped Settlement Land in order to reach adjacent Non-Settlement Land for commercial and non-commercial purposes, provided that the access is of a casual and insignificant nature, or the route travelled is generally recognized and used and the exercise of the right does not result in a significant alteration to the route.

In addition, any person may enter upon Settlement Land in an emergency, but if damage is caused, must report its location to the affected Yukon First Nation. The person also is liable for significant damage to the Settlement Land or improvements on it as a result of the entry.
