As the Klondike Gold Rush (1896-1899) went on, continued prospecting and the influx of stampeders bound for the boomtown of Dawson City fueled demand for transportation. Most made the treacherous journey by foot and boat, but in 1898, work began on a narrow-gauge railroad that would serve as a vital link to the coast and the rest of the world.

The world-famous Klondike Gold Rush (1896-1899) is an essential chapter in Canada’s history; in August 1896, Keish (Skookum Jim Mason) and his nephew Kàa Goox (Dawson Charlie) sought out and found Shaaw Tlàa (Kate Carmack), and her husband, George Carmack, before the group made the famous find that captured the world’s attention.
After the first gold pieces were found in August 1896 at Rabbit (Bonanza) Creek, the initial rush of prospectors turned into a stampede the following year. The boom days spurred Yukon’s entry into Confederation and Canada’s development as one of the world’s leading gold producers. Still, the Klondike Gold Rush also had a devastating impact on local Indigenous communities. Gold rushers displaced these communities and introduced policies that fundamentally undermined their traditional ways of life—a legacy those communities still grapple with today.
