Joanne Fairlie

Director & Chair of YDC

“What excites me about Yukon Energy is the thought-provoking implications of the different ways energy can be developed and delivered.”

As Chair of the Yukon Development Corporation, I am automatically appointed a member of the Yukon Energy Board of Directors (pursuant to Order in Council 2015/95). My interest is in understanding current and future energy supply methods in order to plan for the future energy needs of Yukon. I’ve travelled to many beautiful places in the world, but Yukon’s landscape is special. While I have a good understanding of the business and government environments in which the board must operate, when I walk along Yukon’s trails I feel a connection to the Yukon’s environment itself.
