Who are We?
We are of the North.
Situated in twelve communities on the traditional territories of Yukon First Nations, YukonU is guided by the indomitable spirit of the Yukon wilderness and millennia of resilience and resourcefulness. Eleven of the fourteen First Nations in Yukon are self-governing, shaping the Yukon’s social, economic, and political landscape. YukonU has worked with all governments, partner organizations, and Yukon citizens for six decades to respond to and lead change in the Yukon.

YukonU delivers what the North needs through trades training, certificates, diplomas, degrees, Adult Basic Education, and continuing education. Our community campuses play a vital role in creating access to education for Yukoners and providing opportunities for students from across Canada and internationally to learn about Canada’s North. We also affirm our commitment to Yukon First Nations; it’s why we continue to focus on making the necessary changes to help them heal from the past and revitalize their cultures, languages, and knowledge. We do this to support Indigenous self-governance and self-determination, now and for future generations.

Imagine Yourself Here
This position will be based at YukonU’s Ayamdigut campus in Whitehorse. Built on the traditional territory of the Ta'an Kwächän and Kwanlin Dün First Nations, Whitehorse is known as the Wilderness City—and it’s easy to see why. Nurtured by the Yukon River, Whitehorse is surrounded by hike-able mountains and pristine lakes and streams, with a trail system you could spend a lifetime exploring. Whitehorse’s climate is, on average, milder than comparable northern communities, and with up to nineteen hours of daylight in summer, you have all the time you need to follow your passion for being on the land. With its healthy economy, small-town values, and safe environment, Whitehorse is a great place to raise a family, especially if you enjoy an active lifestyle. Several local schools offer French immersion and experiential educational opportunities, and the city is home to a vibrant arts community, great cafés and eateries, and excellent recreation centres.

Whitehorse is also within driving distance of the Kluane, Tatshenshini-Alsek, and Chilkoot Trail regions. Longer trips to historic Dawson City, the Wrangell Mountains of Alaska, and BC’s Northern Rockies are possible. The rest of the world is a short flight away, with daily connections to travel hubs in southern Canada.
