Yukon Territory

Best known for the Klondike gold rush that saw over 100,000 prospectors risk life and limb for the precious metal between 1896 and 1899, the Yukon River remains as wild and beautiful as it was over a century ago. Glacier fed lakes and immense beautiful mountains make up the majority of Yukon landscape. The historical capital city of Whitehorse situated alongside the Yukon River has a population of a little over 25,000 people. Job opportunities in Canada may be broad and plenty, but no place will offer a unique quality of life quite like the Yukon, one that you won’t find anywhere else on earth. While the cost of living in Yukon is slightly higher than the national average, this is because people are paid more on average due to the remoteness of the region. Finally, we cannot move along without mentioning one of the Yukon's greatest attractions, the northern lights or aurora borealis; a beautiful natural phenomenon that causes the winter night skies to frequently light up in a variety of stunning colourful lights.
