The Northern Affairs Program (NAP) of the federal Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development (DIAND) has overall responsibility for the control and administration of a wide range of natural resources in the North. This includes the responsibility to ensure that resource development benefits all Canadians while reducing damage to the environment and enhancing the lifestyles of all northern residents. Granular resources are necessary for most development projects in the North. Ownership of land in the North generally includes ownership of granular resources: soil, sand, gravel and certain types of rock that are required for land development and are accessible from the land surface in pit and quarry operations. The laws and regulations affecting the taking and use of granular resources, and the process for obtaining authorizations, vary across the North, and also according to land ownership. In the Yukon, there are several categories of land ownership. Therefore, it is imperative that the needs of a wide array of stakeholders and interest groups must be considered in order to properly develop and manage these important resources. Consequently, DIAND has attempted to compile, verify and update information on all stakeholders involved in granular resources. What follows is a comprehensive directory of those involved with any or all aspects of the identification, exploration, regulation, development, management and use of granular resources within the Yukon. The directory is divided into three sections. Part one includes a brief overview of the laws, regulations and application process applicable to the various land ownership categories, including key regulatory contacts. Part two consists of several alphabetical listings of stakeholders grouped into four main categories and several sub-categories. At the beginning of each category is a brief explanation of the category and its sub-headings. The main categories are as follows: Regulators; Reference; Development and Use; and Services. Each stakeholder listing includes (as available) name, position title and organization, mailing and e-mail addresses, telephone and fax numbers and several keywords that describe the stakeholders' role or interest in granular resources. The third 0 part contains three indexes of the stakeholders included in the directory and the page on which their full entry is included. The first index lists organizations that are grouped alphabetically under subject categories that generally correspond to those in the second part of the directory. The second index is an alphabetical listing of all organizations in the directory. The final index is an alphabetic listing of all persons in the directory. A map showing DIAND office locations and Resource Management Areas in the Yukon, and some key definitions are provided for handy reference inside the back cover of this document. ... (Au)
