Yukon Provincial Nominee Program

About Yukon Territory

Yukon lies in the northwestern corner of Canada. Bounded to the east by Northwest Territories, the US state of Alaska lies west of Yukon. While the Canadian province of British Columbia is the neighbor to the south, Yukon extends northwards to the Beaufort Sea.

Yukon traces its name to the Gwich’in aboriginal word “Yu-kun-ah,” meaning “great river”, referring to the 3,190 kilometers long Yukon River. Despite a massive land mass of 483,450 kilometers, Yukon has a relatively small population of around 40,000 people.

“Whitehorse is the territorial capital of Yukon.”

Other prominent cities in Yukon include:

  • Faro
  • Carcross
  • Dawson
  • Carmacks
  • Watson Lake
  • Haines Junction
  • Pelly Crossing
  • Mt Lorne
  • Ibex Valley
