Yukon’s strong financial position has been affirmed with an AA Stable credit rating and a stable outlook by S&P Global Ratings (S&P) which is a leading credit rating agency publishing global financial research, analysis, and credit ratings. During the evaluation of Canadian provinces and territories, S&P considered demographic trends, the economic performance of the private sector, and government finances. Revenue and expenditure impacts related to the COVID-19 pandemic are considered to be temporary since S&P’s expectation is Yukon to maintain relatively stable fiscal performance. A stable economy in Yukon will attract more immigrants in the future and help the province obtain more investments.
