Living and Working in Whitehorse Yukon:

Yukon Employees' Union is a small organization committed to advocacy, education, and the protection of workers' rights. Our workplace is friendly and respectful, and we enjoy learning from one another. It's a vibrant, professional environment where every voice is valued. Our shared values allow for a healthy and enjoyable work life.  YEU staff are unionized, represented by The Carpenters Union Local 2499. 

Our office is in the heart of some of Canada's most spectacular scenery. The City of Whitehorse is a vibrant, diverse and thriving northern hub on the banks of the Yukon River and on the traditional lands of the Kwanlin Dun and Ta'an Kwach'an peoples. With a population of almost 30,000, we boast a thriving arts community, world class sports facilities, spectacular hiking & biking, foodie culture and year-round festivals to please any taste. Yukon's capital city is serviced year round by Air North the Yukon's Airline (YEU represents the flight attendants), and Air Canada. In the summer months, both Westjet and Condor from Frankfurt Germany make regularly scheduled stops at our International Airport.

It's hard to imagine ever running out of Yukon highways and campgrounds to explore, but if you need a change of scenery, we're only two hours from Skagway Alaska, a bustling cruise ship port and coastal rain forest with some pretty great fishing opportunities.  Dawson City, only a few hours drive away, will take you back to the Gold Rush Days, with its own fantastic lineup of festivals and events sure to entertain. 

Our winters are cold, but sunny and clear. With an arid climate, we don't contend much with sleet, snow, freezing rain, grey skies or cloudy, rainy days. The winter is long, but it's busy and full of activity and action. Go visit the Whitehorse Cross Country Ski Club at Mt. MacIntyre - terrific trails groomed to the standards of national competitions like the Haywood. Our Canada Games Centre offers year round swimming, running, indoor soccer, two hockey rinks and more and there are opportunities for artistic expression of any kind you might imagine. Summers are beautiful... the light is wonderful, and our days last forever!
