Yukon Communities


Yukon covers 483,450 square kilometres and while much of the population resides in the capital city, Whitehorse, many Yukoners live in outlying communities. Each community is independent and unique. Some have strong local economies, others are historical landmarks.  Many investment opportunities exist in or near these communities and many ventures benefit through connections with local communities and local partners.
