The Yukon News has been the recipient of several national and regional awards for its reporting, photography, design, and layout.
The Whitehorse Star was founded in 1900, it appeared only once a week, and its progress to Monday through Friday publication occurred in fits and starts. It was issued twice a week for a time, and then three times a week in the 1960s, five times a week around 1980 – 1983, three times a week around 1983 – 1986, and five times a week thereafter. Its official motto “Illegitimus con Carborundum” is a Latin phrase that means “You mustn’t let the bastards grind you down”.
This bi-weekly newspaper was established in 1983 which serves as the Franco-Yukonnais community. L’Aurore Boreale is a public opinion forum, a meeting place and a source of information and communication within the territory’s French-speaking community. It began as a monthly publication then settled into its current twice-monthly format in 1999. The newspaper’s name is the French translation of Aurora Borealis.
