We need your support in becoming
Canada’s first northern university

Yukon University

Who We Are

YukonU -  A Hybrid University.

Get Involved & Donate

We invite believers in a better future for all Canadians, to support our national campaign. 

Life in the North has always required ingenuity, strength, and community. Yukon University is deeply rooted in these values. With Yukon First Nations as full partners, the university is creating space to immerse students in the incredible knowledge and innovation of our people. 

Kluane Adamek, Assembly of First Nations Yukon Regional Chief 

As a “hybrid” university, 

Yukon University will offer a pathway to higher education for northern learners who want to pursue education that is relevant to where they live.


Students will be able to access degrees, diplomas, certificates, trades, and academic upgrading. 

Together we will create knowledge and leaders to realize northern and Canadian potential.

Realizing Canada’s first northern university is a once-in-a lifetime opportunity that will have a significant and legacy impact on Yukon Territory and on our country.

Help us become Canada's first Northern University.
