Yukon Research Centre

Yukon College is one of Canada’s top research colleges – with a unique focus on Yukon and northern research and innovation.

The Yukon Research Centre prides itself on investigating distinctly northern questions by applying science and traditional knowledge to offer truly innovative, northern solutions.

Some issues we’ve researched:

  • the impact of our changing climate on highway infrastructure
  • how First Nations traditional knowledge and science can support the closure of mines
  • wildlife populations and key ecosystems across Yukon using long-term tracking
  • improving the well-being of northern communities
  • conserving the northern environment
