WHITEHORSE — Yukon will hold referendums in January aimed at determining if five of its schools want to join a First Nations school board.

Elections Yukon says in a release that schools will hold separate votes in their attendance areas on whether to join the new Yukon First Nations School Board.

The referendums will need 50 per cent plus one of the votes cast to approve the transfer.

If the vote is approved for any of the schools, a territory-wide election will be held in March 2022 to vote for the board’s five trustees.

Elections Yukon says additional schools may be added, if a petition is signed by 20 per cent of eligible electors in their attendance areas.
