      Yukon Province History
At the beginning of the 19th century there was a development of fur trade and Telegraph expedition. The southern Yukon was completely covered with the layer of ash which was due to the volcanic eruption of Mount Churchchill near Alaskan borders. By the end of 19th century, there was an increase in population and was a gradual development of goldmines and setting up of police force. The separation of the Yukon district from the Northwest Territories is the reason of increase in population and gold rush which led to the formation of the separate Yukon Territory in 1898.

      Yukon Province Government
Yukon was a division of the Hudson's Bay Company-administered North-Western Territory and Canadian-administered Northwest Territories in the 19th century. In 1895, it became a separate district of the Northwest Territories and in 1898 it became a separate territory with its own commissioner and appointed Territorial Council. The federal Minister of Indian Affairs was administered the territory before 1979 by the commissioner. The commissioner used to appoint the territory's Executive Council and in 1979 an important degree of power was devolved from the Federal government and commissioner to the territorial legislature in turn which adopted a strong party system of responsible government. This was done through the letter from Jake Epps, the Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development of Yukon. In 2003 there was a Yukon act, which was passed on April 1st, gave the Yukon government additional powers to have control over land and natural resources. The role of the commissioner is just equivalent to that of the provincial lieutenant governor; however commissioner is not the representative of the Queen but in turn employee of the Federal Government. At the federal level Canada is represented by a single Member of Parliament and one senator. Majority population of Yukon is called The First Nation. Each individual of the First Nation has to negotiate a specific land claiming a self-government agreement. Eleven of the 14 First Nation individuals had singed an agreement on December 2005.
