Sandy Silver

Klondike

Premier, Minister of the Executive Council Office and Minister of Finance. Proud to serve the riding of Klondike.

Sandy Silver came to the Yukon in the spring of 1996, from Antigonish, Nova Scotia, armed with degrees in Math and Psychology from Saint Francis Xavier University and a Bachelor of Education from the University of Maine. On his first day he volunteered to coach basketball at F.H. Collins, “to get his foot in the door,” and was hired on the spot.

By 1998, Sandy’s experience working with teachers, parents, and students from the communities drew him towards Dawson City. The incredible community spirit he found there, which allows anyone who is ready, willing, and able to contribute, made it abundantly clear Dawson would become his home.

While leading the mathematics department at Robert Service School, Sandy coached, mentored, and tutored youth from all walks of life. He was also volunteering for many community organizations.  As a musician himself, Sandy played with many Yukon bands, including a two-year stint with the Pointer Brothers.

While living and working in the small but vibrant community of Dawson City, Sandy has been an active and involved educator in the First Nations community. He has supervised practicums for the Yukon Native Teacher Education Program and has also been involved with the Tr’ondek Hwech’in Justice department and the restorative justice process including Community Group Conferencing. He has worked with youth alongside the Young Offenders Act and mentored a number of at-risk teens in the community. He is a dedicated participant in the Tr’ondek Hwech’in Moosehide Gatherings.

Sandy Silver was elected for the first time to the Yukon Legislative Assembly in 2011. He was re-elected in 2016, and proudly continues to serves as Klondike’s MLA. To represent the riding effectively, Sandy works closely with the Tr’ondek Hwech’in, the City of Dawson, the Dawson City Chamber of Commerce, the Klondike Placer Miner’s Association, and other non-profit organizations.

Sandy Silver’s appointment as Premier took effect on December 3, 2016. In addition to being Premier, he is the minister responsible for the Executive Council Office (which includes aboriginal relations and intergovernmental relations) and the Department of Finance.

Sandy Silver is currently a member of the Members’ Services Board. He was appointed to the committee by order of the House on January 12, 2017.
