Yukon became a separate territory in 1898. Some birth records began to be made about 1896, when the Yukon was part of the Northwest Territories. Birth registration continued when the Yukon Territory took over the responsibility in 1898. Marriages and deaths began to be recorded in 1899.

Vital records began to be kept more systematically in 1925. A substantially complete registration of vital records of births, marriages, and deaths was achieved by 1930.

All vital records of birth, marriage, and death must be requested on forms available from the Vital Statistics Agency.

Some births, marriages, and deaths not recorded in vital records may be in church records.
