This project involved investigating the feasibility of a proposed expansion of existing white-water features within the Yukon River from a business case and community support perspective. Inukshuk -in cooperation with River Restoration, Jane of all Trades Consulting, Research Northwest, Yukonomics and Underhill Geomatics- developed four development scenarios including capital, operating cost as well as monetary and nonmonetary benefits.
The study findings concluded that anticipated project benefits were largely intangible and un-quantifiable at the time. Broad-based community support in social, economic and recreational terms was proven and warranted further investment in technical studies required for project permitting and facility construction.
