In 1914, The Motor Vehicle Ordinance No. 14 was assented to, thereby allowing the Territory Secretary of the Yukon to "issue and deliver ... two number plates having thereon the registration number of such motor vehicle, the abbreviated name of the Territory and the year of issue."
The Yukon was one of the last jurisdictions in Canada to require motorists operating within its borders to register their vehicles and display licence plates, but has now been issuing licence plates for the better part of the past century.
This web site attempts to visually capture and present the history of these plates, and is based upon extensive archival research as well as interviews with fellow Yukon plate enthusiasts. At present, there are approximately 200 different licence plates showcased, which is a number that we hope will continue to increase on a regular basis - so check back often!
