G/P Locums Required


One of the best reasons to do a locum visit in Yukon is to take advantage of the outdoors and there's a lot to do! From hiking, to river tours, flightseeing, dog sledding, canoeing, mountain biking, fishing... the list goes on and on. If you’re looking for an adventure, an experience of a lifetime, come join us. 

Set in the wide valley of the Yukon River, Whitehorse is the capital of the Yukon and by far its largest community. Close to 70 percent of the total Yukon population lives in the community of Whitehorse; this includes the City of Whitehorse, Mount Lorne, Ibex Valley, Marsh Lake and surrounding areas. The city lies within the shared traditional territory of the Ta'an Kwach'an Council (TKC) and the Kwanlin Dun First Nation (KDFN).

Whitehorse is now a contemporary city and the government and business centre for the Yukon. The Yukon government headquarters and several federal government offices are located there. The Council of Yukon First Nations also has its headquarters in Whitehorse. Most major Yukon businesses, utility companies and services operate out of the city.

Government activity provides considerable economic stability to the Whitehorse area. Tourism has become a major source of economic growth for the city. Tourists often visit as they pass through, either along the Alaska Highway or by flying into the Whitehorse airport.
