Frequently Asked Question: Are there any additional costs to consider when thinking about buying in the Yukon?

Because of its remote location, goods and services are typically quite a bit more expensive in the Yukon since they need to be shipped in. Everyday items such as produce and bathroom supplies, for example, will end up costing you more than they would in other parts of Canada. Hydro is also something that can inflate your cost of living, since temperatures can dip so low and daylight hours are very short in some months of the year. It's also worth noting that because the Yukon is not easily accessible, transportation to and from the territory will cost a pretty penny.
