Jeremy Harper

Mayo-Tatchun

Jeremy Harper was elected to the Yukon Legislative Assembly in the 2021 Yukon general election. On May 11, he was elected as the Speaker of the Yukon Legislative Assembly. He is proud to serve the riding of Mayo-Tatchun.

Jeremy Harper is a member of Selkirk First Nation. He has worked in recreation with Selkirk First Nation for more than 20 years and was most recently the Recreation Coordinator for the last seven of those years.

He has served as a Wolf Councillor, and was just serving his third term as an elected leader with the First Nation. He has also been on the board of the Selkirk Development Corporation for the past nine and a half years.

Since being elected to the Selkirk First Nation government, Harper has worked to help his First Nation move forward in the right direction. Most recently that has involved building and maintaining good working relationships with organizations and companies in order to ensure adequate water systems are in place, training and jobs are secured for citizens as well as building housing in Pelly so that more First Nation members could live in the community.

As the Recreation Coordinator, Harper promoted healthy living through recreation in his community. He continues to support and lead youth in many ways. He has been both a hockey and swimming coach and has attended the North American Indigenous Games as both an athlete and coach. Harper is also a Canadian Ranger and has been since 2007.

Harper says he believes collaboration is key to making sure Yukoners are getting the best possible services from their governments.

Traditional ways of life are important to Harper. He feels strongly about sharing all he has with his family and his community. He values the time he can spend on the land, hunting and fishing to provide for his family.
