Yukon Archives

The Yukon Archives acquires, preserves, and provides access to the Yukon's documentary heritage. Photocopy, map and photograph reproduction services are available.

The Archives can also order reference material for patrons from other institutions through inter-library loan.

If you are unable to visit the Archives in person, reference assistance is available through correspondence. The Archives also offers periodic lecture series, film showings, displays, radio broadcasts, and newspaper articles on selected topics in Yukon history.

What's New

On Display in our Exhibition Room
Mapping the Way -- Extended Until the End of January

Mapping the Way is an initiative that celebrates and raises awareness about Yukon First Nations land claims and self-government.

This initiative is a partnership between the Government of Canada, the Government of Yukon, the Council of Yukon First Nations and all 11 Self-Governing Yukon First Nations. These 14 parties work together to implement land claims and self-government in the territory.

Settling land claims and self-government agreements in Yukon involved decades of hard work, innovation and commitment by leaders and visionaries.

To learn more see the Selective Bibliography on Yukon Land Claims Documents held in the Yukon Archives Library.

The exhibit, on loan to Yukon Archives from Mapping the Way, shares some of the stories of the people and events that helped map the way to a new governance landscape for all Yukoners. Includes videos and podcasts. On display through January 31, 2019.
