Home to approximately 30,000 people, Yukon is the northwest province of Canada. The Klondike Gold Rush of the late 1890s probably gave Yukon the legendary place in the country’s history. Most of its population live in the capital of Whitehorse. Its economy depends mostly on mining and tourism. If you value strong communities, as well as amazing outdoors, Yukon could be a great place for you to settle.
