Capital city, population of 27,000. Great community with lots of recreational amenities and services offered. We are a wilderness city with many international/global visitors. Although we have a small population we have most venues and services that you would see in a larger city. Whitehorse has a very large artistic community and there are many entertainment events that happen all year long.
Employee housing available. We have a program with Yukon college where we rent out their dormitory rooms, mostly singles but some are two and three bedroom apartments. Located approximately five miles from Hotel and very limited bus service. The college does have shared kitchen and lounge facilities for all the single rooms and of course the apartments have a full kitchen as well.
You must get your own way to and from Whitehorse. Upon your arrival to Whitehorse there is free shuttle service available to our hotel. Speak with your hiring manager for more information.
