The federal government has appointed a new chair of the Yukon Environmental and Socio-economic Assessment Board.
Aboriginal Affairs Minister Bernard Valcourt appointed Wendy Randall to the top spot this week.
Randall has previously been the executive director of YESAB, and represented the board in the five-year review of the legislation, according to the news release.
She has also worked for the Kwanlin Dun First Nation, Yukon College and the Yukon government.
Since 2010 she has run her own consulting company, offering services related to environmental assessments in the territories and B.C.
“On behalf of the government of Canada, I would like to extend my congratulations to Ms. Randall on her appointment,” said Valcourt in a statement. “Her background and experience will assist the board in undertaking the important work that lies ahead.”
