Whether you're a long-time Yukoner, recently relocated, or considering a new adventure in the North, knowing where to start or what the next step is can be both an exciting and daunting challenge. Yukon's culture and economy has a rich 100+ year's history in mineral exploration and mining, which has created a dynamic sector with a wealth of resources. Building your Yukon Mining Connection, that is your network, may be the single most valuable asset in building a successful career path!

YukonWIM is committed to helping YOU make your Yukon Mining Connection and figure out the WHO and WHAT of Yukon's organizations and resources. We have collected the names, mandates, services and links for as many associations, organizations, institutions and web resources as we can think to ensure this key information is available.

Build your network to share in the wealth of knowledge, expertise and experiences that these organizations and Yukoners have to offer.
