YAA History

 

The Yukon Agricultural Association evolved from the Yukon Livestock and Agriculture Association that was established over three decades ago. The Association has represented the agriculture industry in dealings with governments and other organizations over that period of time. It provides cross-commodity support in fostering agricultural development in the Yukon. The Association reorganized and adopted a new constitution in 1997 and amended its by-laws in 2015. Its "Objects" remain the following:

  1. To foster and promote the livestock and agriculture industry in Yukon and elsewhere;
  2. To cooperate with governmental authorities and other interested groups to develop and advance a suitable policy for livestock and agricultural industry and communications relating thereto;
  3. To collect and study legislation pertaining to livestock and agricultural industry in Yukon or elsewhere in order to develop and update regulations which will meet the requirements and needs of the industry;
  4. To act as a medium for the expression of views of its members affecting the interest of those engaged in the livestock and agriculture industry, and to distribute to its members and the public accurate and reliable information on matters of livestock and agriculture;
  5. To enter into affiliation or reciprocal arrangements with other organizations in Yukon or elsewhere;
  6. To mutually discuss problems related to livestock and agriculture;
  7. To purchase, take or lease or exchange, hire or otherwise acquire any real or personal property and any rights or privileges and to engage in any activity necessary or ancillary to carrying out the objects or purpose of the society.

The objectives of the Association, are expressed in condensed form below:

  • to foster and promote Yukon agriculture;
  • to encourage research and development pertaining to agriculture;
  • to support suitable Yukon agriculture policies;
  • to help develop legislation and regulations which meet the needs of the industry;
  • to lobby for the industry; and,
  • to provide agricultural information to both Association members and the Yukon public
