The most westerly community in Canada which is a few kilometers from the Alaska border. The community has a pool open in the summer, curling rink in the winter, and is host to a couple hundred permanent residents. The population almost doubles in the summer and the main industry is hotels and Canada Customs.
Once a fishing and hunting camp for Tlingit and Tagish people, the community lies approximately halfway between Skagway, Alaska and Whitehorse. The Gold Rush, the White Pass and Yukon Route railway which was completed in 1901, and a mining boom changed the community, and it is now home to about 400 people, half of whom are First Nations people. Tourism has replaced both mine and rail as the mainstay of the local economy. by editor funk 2000.03.23
