Firelight will be attending the upcoming Northern Planning Conference: Planning for the North. The event takes place from February 15-18 in Whitehorse, Taa’an Kwächän and Kwunlin Dün territories, Yukon.

The Conference is expected to host planners, resource managers, social and economic experts, and Indigenous, territorial, and provincial and federal government representatives. The purpose of the conference is to share and learn from one another as Yukon undergoes a changing planning and decision-making environment.  

The Northern Planning Conference adopts four key themes: (1) Governance; (2) Planning for change and sustainability; (3) The future of northern planning; and (4) Planning methods in the North.

Firelight member Sarah Reid will be presenting on work she completed with a coastal BC community on climate change adaptation planning, while Lindsay Galbraith will be presenting on Indigenous-led environmental assessments that are increasingly being adopted in BC.

Firelight is excited to connect with Yukon communities and others to share our experience and expertise in supporting communities that are taking the lead in decision-making and planning in their territories.

Firelight works directly for communities, providing a wide range of support in land use planning, policy development and governance
