Today our caucus is excited to see the independent Yukon Financial Advisory Panel launch the second phase of their engagement with Yukoners.
This summer, Yukoners provided feedback to the panel on their values and priorities for Yukon’s financial future. The panel used this input to help prepare draft options the Yukon government can consider to ensure Yukon’s healthy financial future.

“The Yukon Liberal caucus fully supports the important work of the independent Yukon Financial Advisory Panel. Our caucus is committed to responsible fiscal management and involving Yukoners in the decisions government makes. We believe this engagement process is an important step in accomplishing these commitments and we strongly encourage all Yukoners, no matter your age or financial background, to participate.”
Why has the government assembled this panel?
The Yukon government is facing financial challenges. For the last 10 years the Yukon government’s revenue has grown 1.7% per year while spending has grown 2.5% per year. For the last decade the government has been consistently spending more than it has been making. It’s time to chart a new path forward, and build a sustainable future for the territory.
What draft options have the panel prepared?
The draft options have been prepared with consideration of the input received from Yukoners this summer, and are ready for your feedback.
The draft options are organized into the 5 discussion categories:
- Options for Short Term Financial Health
- Options for Medium Term Financial Health
- Options for Long Term Financial Health
- Successfully Implementing the Yukon government’s Four Priorities
- Improving Yukon Government Efficiency & Effectiveness
