The parcel addressing system was created as a response to requests from unincorporated rural Yukon property owners. The intent was to locate rural property owners in the event of an emergency, specifically around ambulance, fire, and RCMP emergency concerns. Parcel address data is a physical address of a number, street name, street type, and community. It is distinct from the legal address (lot, block, plan) and the mailing address. Eight municipalities (Carcross, Carmacks, Dawson, Haines Junction, Mayo, Teslin, Watson Lake and Whitehorse) provided address information into the database; address information from unincorporated rural Yukon was created by Yukon Government, Community Services. Polygons are tied to cadastral fabric where possible. Parcel address information is managed by Yukon Government, Land Planning branch. The Parcel address spatial layer is updated as necessary.
