Starting in 2023, September 30 will be recognized as a statutory holiday across the territory in recognition of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. To mitigate additional costs to businesses, the opposition Yukon Party has noted that they are in support of the removal of a current statutory holiday to be identified during government consultation. As on all other statutory holidays in the Yukon, retailers can remain open as long as they pay their employees according to law.
