In accordance with the Yukon Highways Act, persons or businesses that wish to perform activities within a highway right-of-way are required to apply for a permit.

  • Highway rights-of-way are defined as the legal surveyed land/area set aside for highways and roads. This area extends beyond the traveled surface.
  • Highways that are not maintained also require Permits.
  • The permitting process will involve an assessment of the area, work proposed and a review of the safety concerns associated with that work.
  • Permit applications can take from four to six weeks to process.
  • Proof of insurance must be provided prior to approval. Applicants shall name Government of Yukon as “Additional Insured” on their insurance policy.

Note:
Permit applications and further information can be obtained from the Government of Yukon website.
