Yukon Government selects Questica for their new budgeting system


With a population of over 35,000 (recently surpassed 40,000 for the first time since the Klondike gold rush) , the Yukon is the smallest and westernmost of Canada’s three federal territories which includes the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. Famous in history as the location of the Klondike Gold Rush, the Yukon of today is a unique and majestic destination for nature lovers to visit, and rich with the cultural history of the 14 First Nations who reside in the territory.


With an annual budget of $1.5 billion, the Yukon Government wanted to move away from budgeting with Excel spreadsheets and establish a more efficient system to manage their operations, maintenance and capital projects budgets. Specifically, Yukon wanted to improve their ability to maintain budget information in one central location, integrate with their financial system, ensure security and role base workflow and audit capabilities at each stage of the budget process, the ability to analyze budget data, and produce a variety of reports and dashboards.
