Commissioner’s office moving to new location

WHITEHORSE—The Office of the Commissioner of Yukon is moving next week from its current location on Front Street to its new home in the historic Taylor House at 412 Main Street in Whitehorse.

“Taylor House is a beautiful heritage building which will serve as a distinguished venue for the work of the Commissioner of Yukon,” Commissioner Doug Phillips said. “I am very pleased that the office now has a permanent home in a fitting location.”

The Commissioner’s Office relocation begins on February 23. Limited services will be available at the Front Street office on that day. The office will be fully closed on the 24th. The office will re-open at Taylor House – again with limited services – on the 25th. Full services will resume on February 26th.

Taylor House was constructed in 1937 as a residence for Bill and Aline Taylor, who contributed to the early growth and economic development of Yukon through the Taylor and Drury Company mercantile chain. It is designated as a historic place by the City of Whitehorse.
