The opportunity…

The Water Board Secretariat is a branch within Executive Council Office providing professional, technical, and administrative support necessary for the proper conduct of the business of the Yukon Water Board. The Secretariat supports the Board, which is an independent administrative tribunal in making informed licensing decisions, which provide for the conservation, development, and utilization of waters in a manner that provides for optimum benefit for all Canadians and for the residents of Yukon in particular.
