High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Yukon is the
westernmost and smallest of Canada's three federal territories.
It was named after the Yukon River, Yukon meaning "Great
River" in Gwich in. The territory was created in 1898 as the
Yukon Territory. The federal government's most recent update of
the Yukon Act in 2003 confirmed "Yukon", rather than
"Yukon Territory", as the current usage standard. At
5,959 metres (19,551 ft), Yukon's Mount Logan, in Kluane
National Park and Reserve, is the highest mountain in Canada and
the second highest of North America (after Mount McKinley in the
U.S. state of Alaska).
