39th Yukon general election

The 39th Yukon general election will return members to the 35th Yukon Legislative Assembly. There is no fixed election date law in Yukon, so the maximum length that a legislature may sit is determined by Section 4 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms: "no legislative assembly shall continue for longer than five years from the date fixed for the return of the writs at a general election of its members".[2] The writs for the previous general election were returned November 14, 2016,[3] meaning an election must happen by late 2021.
