Yukon College provides education and training through 13 campuses. As a winner of the Colleges and Institutes Canada Gold Indigenous Education Excellence award, and acknowledged in 2016 as #1 in Canada for research intensity amongst Canadian colleges and 4th for research partnerships, Yukon College has developed its name and expertise in programming and research for the North. The college’s three main areas of programming growth include: climate change; Indigenous self-government and self-determination, and resource development. In addition to the over 50 career, access and skill programs, YC delivers a B.Ed, BSW and B.SC. with the Universities of Alberta and Regina and is currently developing made-in-Yukon degrees and post-graduate credentials.
In 2021 Yukon College (YC) anticipates transitioning to university status and will be named Yukon University (YukonU). When this transition takes place we will be the first university in Canada’s North.
