Dawson City, Yukon

The Town of the City of Dawson, commonly known as Dawson City or Dawson, is a town in Yukon, Canada. It is inseparably linked to the Klondike Gold Rush.

Now the town boasts an eclectic mix of arts, culture, wilderness and history. Placer miners, artists, adventurists, old-timers and new-timers effortlessly share the town set in the middle of Yukon. There are nearly 2,000 people who work mainly in the tourism, mining and public service industry. Some came to share in Dawson’s unique arts and culture, others for the adventure and pristine beauty, and others to be part of the strong community spirit

Dawson City is home to the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in First Nation. The citizenship of roughly 1,100 includes descendants of the Hän-speaking people, who have lived along the Yukon River for millennia, and a diverse mix of families descended from Gwich’in, Northern Tutchone and other language groups.
