A complete list of calendar dates for all Yukon schools for the 2022–23 school year are now finalized and available online at Yukon.ca.

School calendars are developed in partnership with school administrators and school councils. School councils provide input on how school calendar dates affect the community, including for Yukon First Nations cultural activities.

Schools that will be operating under the new Yukon First Nation School Board have aligned their initial professional development days for educators to receive targeted professional development on Indigenous methods and practices of teaching before the start of the 2022–23 school year.

The two schools operated by the Commission scolaire francophone du Yukon (CSFY) align their school calendars with other Whitehorse schools.

The Government of Yukon publishes key school calendar dates early to support families, school staff and communities to plan around the school calendar.

Thank you to all school administrators and school councils for ensuring the school calendar reflects the unique needs of our school communities, including the new Yukon First Nation School Board, and supports effective learning for students. We are pleased to share finalized dates for the 2022 –23 school year with Yukon families.

Minister of Education Jeanie McLean
