Government Records
The Yukon Archives continuously acquires significant Yukon records through the government's records management program.
Documents from the central registry date back to 1896 and pertain to a wide range of subjects, including education, elections, wildlife, transportation, legislation and land. Also among the territorial records are Territorial and Gold Commissioner's Court records, and estate files of the Public Administrator.

The Archives also serves as a repository for the records of Yukon municipalities, including Dawson City, Whitehorse, Mayo, Faro, Watson Lake, and Haines Junction.

Some series of federal government records held by the Yukon Archives are Mining Recorders' documents and record books, Mounted Police material, Yukon Telegraph Service records and microfilm copies of the United States Army, Northwest Service Command records relating to the construction of the Alaska Highway and the Canol pipeline.
