Formation: 1978

The Premier of Yukon (or unofficially, the Premier of the Yukon) is the first minister for the Canadian territory of Yukon. They are the territory's head of government and de facto chief executive, although their powers are considerably smaller than that of a provincial premier.

From 1978 to 1990 and from 1992 to 1996, the term Government Leader was used instead. Tony Penikett chose to change the title to "Premier" amid some controversy. His successor, John Ostashek, returned to the "Government Leader".

The current Premier of the Yukon is Dennis Fentie.
