As long as you have a red seal certificate you as a licensed electrician can work in the Yukon.

Work as a contractor ? NO! Unless you meet the requirements of the Yukon as a contractor.

The question really is, would you want to and why? Isn't Alberta cold enough for you? lol. I would contact the local government and enquire before assuming.

I think Mark has the right answer. As a Red Seal, you can work for a contractor in the Yukon.

I don't believe you can just hang up your shingle and start an electrical contracting business in the Yukon.

Beautiful place; spent 6 years there - miss it a lot.
