Living in Yukon

Yukon is one of North America's last, unspoiled wilderness areas offering unmatched recreation opportunities, a network of parks and access to some of the most spectacular natural landscapes in the world.

Whitehorse is a progressive capital city with the amenities of a much larger centre including the Erik Nielsen International Airport and world-class sports and recreation facilities, along with a vibrant arts and culture community.

A major transportation and service centre, Whitehorse anchors an extensive network of highways and well-maintained infrastructure. This cosmopolitan city of 27,000 is surrounded by forested wilderness where residents have the best of both worlds – a clean, natural environment with unlimited wide-open spaces and the pleasures and conveniences of the city.

Yukon's many smaller communities offer character, access to nature and most importantly, a great place to raise a family. Yukoners continue to enjoy a very high quality of life and a low unemployment rate. Investors and others looking to relocate find Yukon to be a welcoming place where hard work is valued, creativity is appreciated and cultural diversity is celebrated. For many, our enviable lifestyle is Yukon’s ultimate attraction.
