The Champagne and Aishihik First Nation and Yukon government are renewing a longtime agreement to manage Haines Junction area forests.

The Yukon government and Champagne and Aishihik First Nation are getting together on a renewed forest management implementation agreement.

The agreement will see the completion of a timber supply analysis, as well as determine a new annual allowable cut in the First Nations Traditional Territory.

Other items include a monitoring plan, development of a forest policy, promotion of socio-economic benefits, and continued wood supply development.

A Fire Smart plan will also be developed.

The two first signed an agreement in 2004, with a renewal in 2012.
