Population and Labour Force

Population

Tagish has a diverse population of people; some part-time residents own summer homes, while many live year-round.

In 2013, the population of Tagish was 391 residents.

The population of the Yukon itself is growing; a population growth of 11.6% between the 2006 and 2011 census years was the highest in Canada.

Labour Force

From forestry to mining, Yukoners have worked in natural resource industries for over 100 years, and in developing expertise for working in remote, cold-climate conditions. 

More recently, with new technologies and media-based innovations, along with territory-wide broadband connectivity, Yukoners have become skilled knowledge-based workers.
