City of Whitehorse

Established as the Yukon’s capital city in 1953, the City of Whitehorse is home to some of the most spectacular scenery in Canada. Named the Wilderness City, Whitehorse is nestled on the banks of the famous Yukon River and is surrounded by rugged mountains and pristine lakes. With gorgeous scenery and a vibrant city scene, it is no small wonder that over 29,000 people make Whitehorse their home. In addition, a healthy economy, a small town feel, a perfect environment in which to raise a family, and access to the great outdoors put Whitehorse among the best cities in Canada in which to live, work and play. Its economic base includes mining services, tourism, transportation services, and government services. Visitors to this fair City will not be disappointed.
