What is the Financial Advisory Panel?

The government will face significant deficits over the next 3 years and our net financial assets could reach a net debt of $216 million by 2020-21.

The Financial Advisory Panel was created to engage Yukoners. We want to work together to come up with options for how to deal with these financial challenges. The Panel would like feedback from the public on how the government can deliver on its priorities, meet the needs of Yukoners and return the territory to a healthy financial position.

The Panel is independent of government and will operate for a limited period of time with the support of the Department of Finance.

The Panel is independent from government and consists of 2 Yukon members and 3 members from across Canada. These members bring a variety of expertise, finance, economics, fiscal policy and the Yukon context.
