Known as the site of the Klondike Gold Rush, the Yukon is rich in untapped, world-class critical mineral and precious metals deposits. The Yukon is a global leader in First Nations relations and environmental stewardship.

Bordering British Columbia and the U.S. state of Alaska, the Yukon has the only university in northern Canada and supports the only contiguous Canadian road link to the Beaufort Sea. Its transportation infrastructure includes connections by air and road, with ocean ports in nearby Alaska and BC.
