YK to hold referendums to determine if schools will transfer to YK First Nations School Board

November 17, 2021
The Government of Yukon has announced that it will be holding referendums in January to determine if five schools will join the Yukon First Nations School Board. The schools will hold votes in their attendance areas. Each school will require over 50% of the votes to approve the joining in order for the transfer to take place. Schools can be added to the election if 20% of the eligible electors in the school’s attendance area sign a petition. If any schools vote to join the First Nations School Board, an election will be held to determine the board’s trustees. National Post | Nation Talk (YK)
