WHAT DOES YUKON MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Yukon

Yukon

Yukon /ˈjuːkɒn/ is the westernmost and smallest of Canada's three federal territories. Whitehorse is the territorial capital and Yukon's largest city. The territory was split from the Northwest Territories in 1898. Receiving royal assent on March 27, 2002, the federal government modernized the Yukon Act to confirm "Yukon" as the current standard, though "Yukon Territory" remains the more popular usage. Though officially bilingual, the Yukon Government also recognizes First Nations languages. At 5,959 m, Yukon's Mount Logan, in Kluane National Park and Reserve, is the highest mountain in Canada and the second-highest on the North American continent. The territory's climate is Arctic in the north, subarctic in the central region, between north of Whitehorse and Old Crow, and has a humid continental climate in the far south, south of Whitehorse and in areas close to the British Columbia border. Several rivers run through Yukon, some being the Stewart River, Peel River, and ever famous Yukon River. The Territory was named after the Yukon River.
