No information available. Function: The Yukon River Basin Committee was established under the terms of "An Agreement Respecting Studies and Planning of Water Resources in the Yukon River Basin", between Canada, British Columbia and Yukon. The committee consisted of four members, one each appointed by the Minister of the Environment for Canada, the Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development Canada, the Minister of Environment for British Columbia and the Commissioner of the Yukon Territory, on advice of the Government of Yukon. The committee was chaired by the member from Environment Canada. The scope of the study was broad, specifying "that all significant water-related development alternatives in the Yukon River Basin be evaluated in terms of their social, economic, and environmental effects." The committee first met on March 27, 1981 in Whitehorse. Eight study areas were established: hydrology; water quality; wildlife; tourism, parks and recreation; fisheries; socio-economic; energy; and placer mining. Work groups were formed and were responsible for the preparation of a work plan in their study area, monitoring the progress and results of the studies and preparing a final program report on the subject area. The committee was responsible for the administration and conduct of a three-year study, jointly funded with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, to assess fisheries resources in the Yukon River basin, with a final report to be presented to the ministers. The views, conclusions and recommendations of the report were those of the authors (Horler, Aileen, et. al.) and not necessarily those of the Yukon River Basin Committee or the governments of Canada, British Columbia and Yukon.
Scope and content
Collection consists of photographs and textual records. The photographs were removed from the Yukon River Basin Study project report, no. 4: "An Assessment of the Fisheries Resource in 18 Lakes Within the Yukon Territory, Canada", by Aileen Horler, R.A.C. Johnston, G.M.W. Cronkite in 1983. The textual records were collected and prepared by the Energy Work Group of the Yukon River Basin Committee. There are 85 files of photocopied excerpts from energy-related reports. Files 86-88 contain a card file index to the reports, photocopied cross-references to the reports, and a chronology of upper Yukon River studies, 1946-1968.
