What We Do

Our Mission

The Yukon Chamber of Mines represents a dynamic membership and since its creation almost 70 years ago, has worked to serve its valued members and advance the interests of all those involved in the Yukon mining industry. Membership has burgeoned over the years from a dozen founding members in 1943 to more than 400 today. This strong and diverse group includes exploration, mining and service and supply companies, contractors and individuals that have a direct or indirect interest in the mining industry.



COVID-19 Information for Yukon Miners

The current COVID-19 pandemic crisis is affecting all industries both nationwide and internationally and Yukon's Mining Industry is no different. Over the past few weeks we have seen the various levels of government rapidly developing new policies and regulations for different industries as they attempt to combat the spread of COVID-19. These new policies have had great impacts on the day to day business that goes on across these industries, which is why the Yukon Chamber of Mines is committed to passing on all relevant information and best practices to help keep our membership safe. Please review the resources linked below, and keep an eye out for more information coming soon.
