Determine if you are eligible
All pawnbroker and second-hand dealers in Yukon must hold a licence and renew it every year. It is illegal to work without an active licence.
You are eligible to renew your licence if you hold a current pawnbroker and second-hand dealer licence for Yukon and complete steps 2 to 4 of this application process.
Licences expire annually on March 31. Submit your renewal application before February 28. This will ensure we can process your licence before it expires.
