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.

Archival Gold
Favourites from the vault

Archival Gold: Favourites from the Vault captures the flavour and romance of Yukon’s history by exhibiting a selection of reproductions of archival material preserved by the Yukon Archives. Originally on display in the Hougen Heritage Gallery at Arts Underground from November 2012 to January 2013, the exhibit is now available for viewing in the Yukon Archives Exhibition Room. Visitors can view fascinating photographs, diary pages, rare documents, maps, and ephemera held in Yukon Archives’ collections. Also, included in the display are five panels highlighting staff favourites as well as a shadow box containing a unique collection of paperclips.
