Our unique focus on Yukon and northern research is what sets us apart.
Inspired by western science and Indigenous knowledge
Our research draws on western science and Indigenous knowledge to share innovative, northern solutions with our communities, the North, and beyond.
Northern in focus
Our faculty and researchers work on a wide range of topics - from ornithology to electrical engineering, permafrost to pedagogy - and we continue to grow our research expertise in topics relevant to the North.
Grounded in strong partnerships
We collaborate with First Nations, municipal and territorial governments, Yukon communities, industry and other academic institutions.
The YukonU Research Centre is located on Ayamdigut Campus in Whitehorse. Formally established in 2010, we have been conducting, implementing and sharing research on northern topics for over three decades.
The Centre for Northern Innovation in Mining works closely with the YukonU Research Centre to address specific northern challenges and opportunities in the mining industry, and provides a critical link to industry allowing for comprehensive, applied research.
