Douglas Phillips' term as Commissioner ended January 31, 2018.

In accordance with Section 5 and 12 of the Yukon Act – Section 20 (c) and 30 of the Interpretation Ordinance and Section 5 (2)(b) of the Territorial Lands Act, in the absence of a Commissioner the Yukon’s Administrator has the authority to sign documents on behalf of the Commissioner.

Yukon’s Administrator Gerald Isaac will be fulfilling that Legislative function until his Privy Council appointment expires March 8, 2018.

We look forward to the appointment of a new Commissioner by the Right Honorable Justin Trudeau.


This January 31st marks the end of my term as the 25th Commissioner of Yukon.

Serving this office has been a profound honour for both Dale and I.

Over the past seven years, I have had the pleasure of spending time with folks across Yukon and recognizing their outstanding acts of contribution to our community.

Yukoners have welcomed me into their homes with a warmth and kindness that define us as a community, and as a Territory.

I could not have imagined a better way to end my career in the public service.

I would like to thank each and every one of you for making this the best job in Yukon.

Doug Phillips

Commissioner of Yukon
