Settlement Land Leases and Allocations

The Lands and Resources Department assists Citizens to arrange allocations and leases of Settlement Land for traditional and recreational uses, residential use, as well as commercial and other uses.

Allocations are available to TTC Citizens of 19 years or older, and provide the exclusive rights to a parcel of land. Leases are available to non-Citizens, and are issued generally for terms of 30 years with the option to extend for an additional 30 years. If granted an allocation or lease, the individual must accept responsibility to protect the land and treat it with respect, and to pay all property taxes or fees that TTC may impose. All applicable laws, including TTC, Yukon Government, and national laws must be followed on allocated and leased Settlement Land.

Any development or non-traditional activity on allocated or leased Settlement Land will require a Land Use Permit. For more information please contact the Lands and Resources Department at 867-390-2532 ext 373, or see the Settlement Land and Resources Act (PDF) and Settlement Land Allocations (PDF) leaflet.
