One of three Canadian territories, Yukon is situated in the northwest corner of Canada’s continental mainland. It sits between the Canadian province of British Columbia and the Arctic Ocean, with Alaska to the west and the Northwest Territories to the east. The Arctic Circle crosses through the Yukon and the territory has 430 kilometres of shoreline along the Beaufort Sea. Since 2015 Industrial Scaffold Services has been providing scaffolding and environmental containment to the hydroelectric and commercial industries in the Whitehorse area.
Whitehorse is the capital and largest city of Yukon and the largest city in northern Canada. It is Yukon’s only city. It was incorporated in 1950 and is located at kilometre 1426 on the Alaska Highway in southern Yukon. Whitehorse’s downtown and Riverdale areas occupy both shores of the Yukon River, which originates in British Columbia and meets the Bering Sea in Alaska. Because of the city’s location in the Whitehorse valley, the climate is milder than other comparable northern communities such as Yellowknife. At this latitude winter days are short and summer days have up to about 19 hours of daylight. Whitehorse, as reported by Guinness World Records, is the city with the least air pollution in the world. Since 2015 Industrial Scaffold Services has been supplying the commercial and hydroelectric industries with scaffolding and environmental containment.
