Yukon Electrical has been serving the electrical needs of the Yukon Territory for over a century. In 2014 Yukon Electrical changed its name to ATCO Electric Yukon.
On July 2, 1901 the Commissioner of the Yukon granted a charter to "Yukon Electrical to construct, equip, maintain, and operate in any locality in the Yukon Territory one or more systems of electric light, heat and power supply."
In 2014 Yukon Electrical changed its name to ATCO Electric Yukon.
ATCO Electric Yukon, a pioneering company established in 1901, has grown with the Yukon. It also benefits from being part of the ATCO Group of Companies. ATCO Electric Yukon's community investments are augmented by ATCO’s long-time presence in the North.
ATCO has a long-standing philosophy of supporting the communities where we live and work. Our community investment initiatives touch all aspects of life, including health and wellness and programs for youth and sports.
ATCO EPIC (Employees Participating in Communities) is an employee-led program where the company matches donations made by employees to the charities of their choice. This ensures that our employees in all locations can make a personal impact.
As the Official Supplier to the 2007 Canada Winter Games in Whitehorse, the ATCO Group of Companies supplied modular units to sport venue sites, electrical service to power the action, security at the Athletes Village and both laptop and desktop computers to keep the information flowing. ATCO volunteers donated their time at ATCO Place, which hosted the opening and closing ceremonies and cultural events. ATCO Electric Yukon and ATCO were also a legacy sponsor of the 2012 Arctic Winter Games held in Whitehorse, Yukon.
ATCO is a diversified global corporation delivering service excellence and innovative business solutions in Structures & Logistics, Electricity, Pipelines & Liquids, and Retail Energy. More information about ATCO can be found on www.ATCO.com.
