Without a firm foundation, nothing lasts.

Yukon’s Department of Highways and Public Works provides services and infrastructure that Yukoners need to go about their daily lives with safety, connectivity, and purpose. Things like roads and bridges, buildings and equipment, airports and government services, and information and communications networks. It is a big department with many tools and hats. Our work is building the foundations that enable you to enjoy a full life in Yukon, one with freedom and opportunity to travel where you need, to do your job without constraints and to connect with the people that matter to you.

We are here so you can be there.
