John Streicker

Mount Lorne-Southern Lakes

Minister of Community Services, Minister responsible for the French Language Services Directorate, and Minister responsible for the Yukon Liquor Corporation and the Yukon Lottery Commission.

John Streicker and his lovely wife, Susan, make their home on beautiful Marsh Lake and are very active members of the Southern Lakes community.

For the past decade John has helped to organize the Marsh Lake Ski-Loppet, put together the first Southern Lakes bike race (now going into its 9th year), and helped to build and rebuild the free store at the Marsh Lake dump. Additionally, he has volunteered for the Community Society, seniors’ tea, the community newsletter, the transfer station, litter pickup and coached kids soccer. John has been a tireless contributor to the greater Yukon as well, volunteering for the Yukon Anti-Poverty Coalition, the annual bridge building competition, United Way breakfasts, New Year’s Family First Night, and Frostbite, just to name a few.

He first attended the University of Saskatchewan where he earned a Bachelors of Science degree in Computer Science and Geography, and subsequently, to the University of New Brunswick to complete a Masters in Engineering.

John has held several key positions in the Yukon including as a professional engineer, a lecturer on climate change, science advisor at the Yukon Research Centre, columnist for the Whitehorse Star, and Recreation Director at the Marsh Lake Community Centre. He was elected to be a Whitehorse City Councilor from 2012 to 2015. For many years, he has written for the Encyclopedia Britannica on topics of the Arctic and climate change, as well as participated in two teaching expeditions into the Arctic.

Several of his key achievements during his time as a City Councilor include improving evening transit availability, building a strong and respectful Council, forging a strong working relationship with Kwanlin Dün First Nation, and tackling difficult issues such as Mount Sima and the Whistle Bend Soccer Fields. John was part of the Municipal Act Review Committee, Association of Yukon Communities, the Persons with Disabilities Advisory Committee, and the Finance Advisory Committee.

While some political candidates are committed to running against opposing views, John appreciates diverse perspectives and is very dedicated to cultivating a better Yukon and, especially, to working with the citizens of his riding to create a more respectful and less partisan way of decision making.

John Streicker was first elected to the Yukon Legislative Assembly in the general election for the 34th Legislative Assembly on November 7, 2016.

John Streicker was appointed to the Executive Council of Yukon (cabinet) on December 3, 2016. He is currently Minister of Community Services, Minister responsible for French Language Services Directorate, and Minister responsible for Yukon Liquor Corporation and the Yukon Lottery Commission.
