The Diocese of Yukon is a diocese of the Ecclesiastical Province of British Columbia and Yukon of the Anglican Church of Canada. It comprises 14 congregations serving 24 communities in the Yukon and parts of northern British Columbia.[1]

The Diocese was formed in 1891 when the Diocese of Mackenzie River, at that time in the Ecclesiastical Province of Rupert's Land, was divided into two. Originally the Diocese of Selkirk, the name of the diocese was changed to Yukon in 1907. It was transferred to its present province in 1947.[2]

Terrence Buckle became the Diocesan bishop in 1995. He was also Metropolitan of the Province of British Columbia and Yukon from 2005–2009. In November 2007 Buckle announced his intention to retire at the end of 2008[3] but following an inconclusive election synod postponed his retirement plans. He will now retire in August 2010.

On May 15, 2010, Larry D. Robertson, since 1999 suffragan bishop in the western region of the Diocese of the Arctic, was elected Bishop of Yukon. He was installed at Christ Church Cathedral in Whitehorse on September 18, 2010.[4]

On May 4, 2019, Lesley C. Wheeler-Dame was elected as Co-adjutor bishop. Lesley was consecrated and installed on August 24, 2019. She is the first female to serve as Diocesan bishop.[5]

In January 2009, Ronald Ferris, former Bishop of Yukon (1981-1995) and subsequently Bishop of Algoma (1995-2008) resigned from the Anglican Church of Canada to continue as a bishop in the Anglican Network in Canada.[6]
