Former Premiers of Yukon Territory


A premier is the chief minister of a territorial government. Because of the shared framework of cabinet government, the office of premier is similar to that held by Canada's prime minister. The policy direction and management of the territorial governments is visibly dominated by their premiers. A premier is in every sense the "first" minister.
