At its 2022 Annual General Meeting, the Association of Yukon Communities unanimously passed a resolution asking that the Government of Yukon increase the term of office for municipal councils to four years. Under the Municipal Act, the current term of office for mayors and municipal and local advisory councils is three years. Before the Government of Yukon can propose possible amendments to the Municipal Act on this issue, as per the partnership agreement between the Association of Yukon Communities and the Government of Yukon, renewed in March 2022, we are fostering timely and meaningful consultation on matters of mutual concern for the benefit of all Yukoners.

A public information-gathering survey is now available on EngageYukon.ca here: from September 1-28, 2022, to help identify impacts of increasing the general election cycle.
