Yukon Territory, administrative region of NW Canada, bounded on the North by the Beaufort Sea, on the East by Northwest Territories, on the South by British Columbia and Alaska, and on the West by Alaska. The Mackenzie Mountains forms much of the Eastern boundary. Yukon Territory entered the Canadian Confederation on June 13, 1898. Yukon Territory remains a land which is sparsely settled, having vast amounts of mineral wealth. It remains one of the great wilderness regions of North America. The name of the territory is taken from the Yukon River; the word coming from an Indian word meaning "great river."
