Safer Communities and Neighborhoods Legislation

The Safer Communities and Neighbourhoods Act was passed by the Yukon Legislature in the spring of 2006. The legislation reflects the government platform commitments of protecting the family and creating safer communities.

As part of the implementation of the Act, the Department of Justice has established a SCAN office and hired investigation and administrative staff. The office can receive complaints about unsafe and illegal activities, including drug-dealing and use, bootlegging, solvent abuse and prostitution.

To make a confidential complaint, call the SCAN hotline at (867) 456-SCAN (7226). Outside Whitehorse, call 1-866-530-SCAN (7226).
