Drones Permitting Application

Privacy Impact Assessment #: ENV-PIA-2023-02
Public Body Name : Environment
Date of Approval: Tuesday, May 30, 2023

There has been an increase in the filming and photography professions to promote the Yukon’s wildlife and nature. Many professionals in these industries use drones in addition to other film and still-photo capturing devices, however, the Wildlife Act and its Regulations prohibits anyone from using drones to hunt wildlife. As a result, a new program is required to ensure that the filming and photography professionals are able to use drones in their industry and for the department to continue to administer the legislative requirements of the Wildlife Act and Regulations. This new initiative will introduce a new permitting application for the use of drones while capturing video footage and images of hunting wildlife. This new initiative is available for wildlife photography businesses to film or photograph the hunting of Yukon wildlife. The permit is free of charge.

Angler Fishing Survey Using Trail Cameras

Privacy Impact Assessment #: ENV-PIA-2023-04
Public Body Name : Environment
Date of Approval: Monday, May 29, 2023

Fish and Wildlife Branch (FWB) conducts angler surveys on multiple lakes and rivers throughout the Yukon during the open water season. Interviews are conducted by surveyors stationed at specified locations (i.e. boat launch) on randomly selected days throughout the summer and occasionally winter months. Summer angler surveys generally run from mid-May till beginning of September and winter surveys run from December till April. To supplement our current and future data, FWB is proposing using trail cameras in addition to in-person interviews. Angler surveys are designed to cover approximately 20-40% of total fishing days throughout a survey period. During analysis, the data is extrapolated to provide an estimate of total angler hours and fish caught/harvested. The data collected from the cameras will supplement our in-person data and better verify our current method of survey design/analysis. The initiative will take place on lakes/rivers that are suitable for capturing total anglers/boats launching during the survey hours (i.e. bottleneck access points and optimal field of view). The cameras will be programmed to take pictures of the access point to capture images of anglers launching boats or potentially fishing from shore.

Public Body Name : Tourism and Culture
Date of Approval: Thursday, May 25, 2023

The Yukon Sustainable Tourism Framework has been created by the Department of Tourism and Culture to measure sustainable tourism development in the Yukon. The aim of sustainable tourism development is to make sure there's a balance between economic, social, and environmental values. The Framework includes a requirement to produce an annual report on a variety of key tourism elements. As a significant amount of information is going to be collected for the report, and much of the information will be updated more often than annually, the Yukon Sustainable Tourism Dashboard website has been created in order to support openness, transparency, and accountability to the public.
The Yukon Sustainable Tourism Dashboard website will be the central hub for Yukon tourism data and insights, including visualizations and reports. Data and insights are expected to be accessed primarily by governments, organizations, and business, for the purpose of informing business decisions. Members of the public, the media, research institutions, the United Nations' International Network of Sustainable Tourism Observatories - of which the Yukon is a member- and others may also access the site.
