Extra allowance for employees in rural communities
To offset the higher cost of living outside Whitehorse, we provide a community allowance to employees working in rural communities. The amount of money depends on several factors, including distance from our head office. If employees receive free room and board they are not eligible for the community allowance.
Bonus to help cover travel costs
To help offset the cost of travel to and from the territory, eligible employees receive an annual subsidy of $2,242. Employees become eligible for the “Yukon bonus” after the first 2 years of continuous service and every year thereafter on the continuous service date. The full amount is paid to full-time employees and pro-rated for part-time employees.
In some situations, new employees may be eligible for reimbursement to cover certain costs related to moving to a Yukon community to work for the Government of Yukon.
Our comprehensive benefit package includes:
- Dental plan
- Extended health care plan
- Long-term disability insurance
- Travel insurance
- Public Service Pension Plan (PSPP) Supplementary Death Benefit
Additional benefits are available to some groups, including:
- Basic life insurance
- Accidental death and dismemberment Insurance
- Dependent life/accidental death and dismemberment Insurance
- Optional life insurance.

Leave without pay
This may be the most suitable leave option when you need to take time for family, community or volunteer activities or other personal pursuits.
When you reach certain career milestones, you'll be rewarded for your service with extra paid leave time.
Deferred salary leave
Finance a leave of absence without pay by deferring portions of your gross annual salary to the period of leave.
