Beaver Creek, Yukon

Beaver Creek is home to roughly 100 people. Known for being Canada’s most westerly community, Beaver Creek is located along the Alaska Highway about 300km northwest of Haines Junction next to the Canada-U.S. border. Its location makes it a natural stopping point for travelers using the Alaska Highway to get to or from Alaska. It is located just 22 kilometres south of the Yukon-Alaska border on the Alaska Highway and 3.5 kilometres from the Canada Customs and Immigration station northwest of town.

The small community is situated where its namesake, Beaver Creek, crosses the highway. It was founded in 1955, primarily as a service community for the highway.

It is home to the White River First Nation.
