Yukon now joins the other Canadian jurisdictions that have open data websites. The Government of Yukon open data website is how we provide a way for users to find, access and reuse our public datasets.

In the government’s last website migration project over a decade ago, we simply moved content from the old website to the new website. We didn’t asses or rewrite the content, we just moved it and continued to add to it over the years.
After Yukon.ca launched in February 2018 we put a freeze on content migration for a couple of months so we had time to address bugs and initial user feedback.
We are continuing to refine the Yukon.ca search experience. Here are some of the improvements we will deploy in the next couple of weeks.
On February 5 and 6 we closed out our first gov.yk.ca department RedDot projects! The Women’s Directorate, Department of Economic Development and Yukon Housing Corporation are the first to migrate all of their webpages to Yukon.ca.

Our website users now have a central place to access information about government events.
We’ve just released a series of 63 new campground and recreation sites pages on Yukon.ca.
Our discovery work into our website users indicated this content is important to people who visit and live in Yukon.
All public-facing online services must go through eServices and the Executive Council Office (ECO). This is under the authority of the government’s “Governance of Digital Services” policy (GAM 1.20).
We are continuing to add improvements to Yukon.ca. One of our most requested new features is for campaign websites. Departments are looking for a way to build, run and manage this type of content.
It has been a few months since we launched our beta website, Yukon.ca. During this time we've been adding new pages to the site and preparing to migrate more content from gov.yk.ca to the new website.
This is a list of what we’ve been working over the past few months what we plan to do next.
The Government of Yukon has operated a website at gov.yk.ca since April 10, 1997. Now, just over 20 years later we’re rolling out a new and improved edition at Yukon.ca.
