Post Date:06/11/2020 2:13 PM

Whitehorse – The City of Whitehorse would like to remind local business owners of the available opportunities to expand their services and commercial activities to adjacent public sidewalks and boulevards.  

The City recognizes the unique challenges faced by local businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic, and their contributions to our vibrant community.

The City is also working with the Government of Yukon with regards to expanding into on-street parking spots.

City staff will work with business owners to determine how they can take physical distancing into account and maximize their outdoor expansion opportunities.

Owners need to submit their plans to the Land and Building Services department, which they can contact by phone at 668-8346 or via email at

“We want to ensure we’re doing everything we can to help small businesses, so any opportunities we can support benefits the entire community,” said Mayor Dan Curtis.
