A shared space for Northern changemakers, innovators, and makers
Yukonstruct Society is a non-profit organization driven by a vibrant community of makers, entrepreneurs, creators, innovators, and leaders. Yukonstruct is proud to manage the first community innovation hub North of 60 in Canada, NorthLight Innovation. Yukonstruct is driven by its mandate to support Yukoners in bringing their ideas to life, through access to shared resources, space, and knowledge. To do this we run a shared coworking space, a makerspace and offer programming to help Yukon entrepreneurs launch and grow their businesses.
At NorthLight Innovation, you’ll find a bright and vibrant co-working space where the coffee is always hot and the internet is fast! You’ll also find a full woodshop, metal shop, digital fabrication space, a hackerspace and so much more. We have the tools to help you bring anything you’re dreaming up to life. You’ll also find YukonU’s Innovation & Entrepreneurship team, and so many other partners and members. Come in for a tour, we’d love to have you join our community.
