The Yukon’s time zone on devices
The Yukon is permanently 7 hours behind Coordinated Universal Time, also called UTC -7.
All of the following time zones are the same as Yukon time:
- Coordinated Universal Time -7 (UTC -7)
- Greenwich Mean Time -7 (GMT -7)
- Mountain Standard Time
- UTC -7 Yukon
The preferred time zone selections are “Yukon”, “Whitehorse” or “Mountain Standard Time”. If you're setting your time zone manually, make sure the option to automatically change the Daylight Saving Time is set to off.
Make sure your device has all current updates installed. This will ensure that your device recognizes it is in the correct time zone. It should then automatically show the right time. Each device may be different. Contact your service provider for specific questions.
If you are not sure about calendars and scheduling of appointments, contact the person or office you have the appointment with.
