Cumulative Effects Assessment in the Yukon

Cumulative Effects Assessment Scoping Guide for the Yukon Territory

Indian and Northern Affairs Canada

ESSA was engaged by Indian and Northern Affairs Canada to develop a technical guidance document for defining the scope of project-specific cumulative impact assessments. Recent literature on cumulative effects assessment (CEA) approaches and methodologies, as well as current CEA and environmental assessment practices in the Yukon were reviewed. The project delivered a conceptual foundation for scoping cumulative effects analyses and specific guidance with respect to issues commonly faced in the Yukon.
