YESAB is undertaking research to understand and to be able to assess the effects of industrial activities to the personal safety of Indigenous and non-Indigenous women and girls and LGBTQ2S+ persons in Yukon communities and on the worksite.
During Fall/Winter 2021, a research team will meet with individuals with lived experiences; who work for industry, industry related organizations, or the private sector; and First Nation governments and Yukon Government.
This project is to assist YESAB assessors to:
• identify how industrial development can influence the personal safety of affected
persons in Yukon communities and on the worksite;
• better understand the cause and effect relationships of industrial activities on
• evaluate the effectiveness of the recently recommended terms and conditions to
mitigate the adverse effects of industrial activities on personal safety; and
• provide current Yukon-specific information to inform future assessments.
