Water Use Licences


Welcome to the Yukon Water Board's WATERLINE, a public register that provides access to water licenses in the Yukon.

Users are able to sign up to receive notification regarding updates to applications and licences as well as submit public comments online. Applicants can create applications, upload reports, and add documents. Waterline will allow you to search licences application,view uploaded reports, and refer amendments, renewal, and assignments histories to a licence. The overall goal of the Water Board is to create transparency and encourage participation in the water licensing process by providing information to the public in an easily navigated format.

As with our current paper-based registry all transactions are publicly viewable once an application is deemed complete. We are currently transferring existing licences and amendments from our website into Waterline. If you cannot find a specific licence you are looking for or have a data request, please contact us for assistance 456-3980.

You can also now upload multiple files to a licence requirements. Please also check out the new reports tab found in the side menu.
