Established as the Yukon's capital city in 1953, the City of Whitehorse is home to some of the most spectacular scenery, talented artists and innovative businesses in Canada.

Situated along the Yukon River on the traditional territory of the Kwanlin Dün First Nation and the Ta’an Kwäch’än Council, over 33,000 call Whitehorse home. The City enjoys a healthy economy thanks to a strong business community, which was recognized when Whitehorse was named the top city for entrepreneurs in 2018 by the Canadian Federation of Independent Business. The City also enjoys a successful working relationship with the areas First Nations and the territorial government.

Environmental sustainability and responsibility has become a key priority for the City. Access to nature remains a top value for residents who can enjoy recreation activities year-round, a vibrant art scene and a multitude of cultures as people from all over the world have decided to settle north of 60.

There is a reason why Whitehorse has seen a steady growth in population; it’s because it truly is a wonderful place to live, work and play.
