The Water-Use Licence for the Whitehorse dams will expire in 2025. To continue operating the dams, Yukon Energy Corporation (YEC) must go through a process to renew this licence.
KDFN is involved in the relicensing process to:
- Ensure that KDFN’s interests are represented and prioritized;
- Preserve or enhance KDFN environmental, cultural, and heritage values in the Southern Lakes region, and the health and wellbeing of the KDFN community; and
- Acknowledge the historical and ongoing impacts of the dams, and seek compensation.
Please note: You may see this project also called the “Whitehorse Rapids Generating Station Relicensing Project”.
