The Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS) is Canada’s only nationwide environmental charity dedicated solely to the protection of our public land and water, and ensuring our parks are managed to protect the nature within them. The Yukon chapter provides a voice for the wilderness in the territory, helping to keep Canada’s “true” north wild and free.
Based in Whitehorse, CPAWS Yukon advocates for the territory’s most valuable and priceless resource: our abundant wilderness. We work with First Nations and all levels of government, local organizations, businesses and citizens to ensure the natural wealth we enjoy today is available for our children tomorrow. We represent the views of many Yukoners who want the Yukon to be an example for the world of how people can live in balance with the natural resources we depend upon.
