YukonU receives $3.4M investment for climate change geohazard research


Yukon University recently received a $3.4M investment from the Government of Canada toward a five-year project to improve the resilience and safety of transportation corridors in the Yukon. The YukonU project is coordinated alongside McMaster University and the Government of Yukon’s Highways and Public Works. “This funding will also allow Yukon University to grow northern research capacity by investing in training for the next generation of climate change researchers,” said YukonU President Dr Lesley Brown. Additional contributions to the project from both YukonU and McMaster bring the combined total investment to nearly $5M.
