Many thanks to all of you who participated in a recent phone survey done by the Yukon Bureau of Statistics.

The Bureau conducted the survey for Yukon Energy as part of our 2016 resource planning. The purpose of the questionnaire was to help us understand what Yukoners value in terms of the territory's electricity future.

The Bureau of Statistics is now starting to compile and analyze the results. We expect to receive a report from them later this summer, which we will share here on this website and at our next round of public meetings, tentatively set for the fall.

Watch for our Survey

A critical part of our resource planning work is to gather your input, so we can create a plan that reflects Yukoners' values in terms of the territory's electricity future.  Keeping in mind that all energy options have impacts and require trade-offs, we want to understand how you would rank the importance of affordability (keeping your power rates low), reliability (keeping the lights on), and a number of social and environmental factors such as protecting the environment and wildlife, respecting traditional lifestyles and heritage resources, supporting economic growth and jobs, and ensuring cultural and community well-being.

We have hired the Yukon Bureau of Statistics to conduct a random phone survey, which will start as early as this week-end and will run over the next few weeks. Up to 5,000 Yukoners will be asked to participate in the 10-minute exercise. If you are one of those who receives a call, please take the time to do the survey.

Your answers will be confidential and the Bureau of Stats will not share any of your personal information, not even with Yukon Energy.

Once the Bureau of Stats has collected and compiled all the results, it will provide us with a report that we will make public - likely sometime in the summer.

Sue greetham We would appreciate reviewing the questions to determine if the rural community stewards are recognized and valued.

Yukon Energy Corporation Sue, the survey was completed earlier this year after input from Yukoners. Here is a link to the full report with all the questions. http://resourceplan.yukonenergy.ca/media/site_documents/Electricity_Values_Survey_Final_Report.pdf
